The Honourable Janet Austin, OBC
Government House is the ceremonial home of all British Columbians; a treasured place for countless people to visit and enjoy year after year.
The work of the Friends of Government House — whether volunteering in the gardens, the mews or within the House itself — is the foundation of what makes this place special.
You help keep the estate of the Lieutenant Governor at a consistent level of excellence, worthy of its national historic site designation; and furthermore, you continue to aspire to do even better.
Volunteerism is a cause close to my heart. Through the selfless donation of your time and effort, you have grown a community as beautiful as our wonderful gardens.
Government House will remain a gathering place for future generations thanks to your hard work and dedication. Thank you for everything you do for Government House, the office of the lieutenant governor, and the province of British Columbia.
