The Alberta Government has started a campaign to recognize people who went above and beyond during June's flood.
Residents are being asked to nominate people for the Heroes of the Flood campaign online.
The nomination period started on Wednesday and will close at 4pm on December 20th. The local heroes will then be recognized in a number of ceremonies starting next year.
"In the days after the flood, I met some extraordinary Albertans with big hearts who were more selfless, resilient, and brave than I could have imagined possible. Itâ€™s so important to me that we recognize those Albertans who have, and are going, above and beyond to help," said Premier Alison Redford in a statement.
Alberta Minister of Municipal Affairs said it's the least they can do for the sacrifices and work done by these individuals.
"This is your chance to recognize those who are making a difference in your community. They might be a local official, a public servant, a neighbour, or a volunteer. While we still have a long road of recovery ahead of us, sharing these stories of resiliency will help us get through."
