Prince George, B.C. –  A big honour for Krista Levar, victim services coordinator with the Prince George RCMP.

She has been announced as one of the recipients of the 2017 BC Community Achievement Awards.

Premier Christy Clark and Scott McIntyre, Chair of the British Columbia Achievement Foundation, made the announcement yesterday.

“What makes British Columbia a great place to call home is the generosity, dedication and commitment of British Columbians,” said Clark. “Than you to the 2017 recipients for always going the extra mile for our communities, and your province.”

A leading expert on therapy dogs, Levar was among the first victim services managers in the province to introduce Crisis K-9’s into a victim-serving agency.

With her dog Max, she also helps kids navigate the court system and has introduced ground-breaking work in this field.

In addition to that, she’s created a personal safety education program for girls at risk called Run for Fun, serves as a board member of the New Hope Society, and has been a volunteer Big Sister for eight years.

Levar and the other recipients will be recognized in a formal presentation at Government House in Victoria later this month.


Wow, this lady has done stuff, for us. The raw emotions these victim service folks have to absorb comforting those in sometimes horrendous circumstances makes them very special people. Thankyou, Krista Levar and your team for the great service you provide.
