The Association for Canadian Studies Award of Merit

The study of Canada fosters an understanding of ourselves, illuminating the diversity of the Canadian experience. Those who have contributed to this on-going project deserve high praise. To acknowledge contributions to the development of Canadian studies in Canada, the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) created the Award of Merit.

Since 1983, the Award of Merit is given annually to a person, group, or organization who has continuously and significantly contributed to the development and/or dissemination of knowledge about Canada. Nominees may include researchers, teachers, administrators, project teams, companies, organizations, writers, editors, and members of the media. Nominees must be residents of Canada; members of the ACS Board of Directors are only eligible two years after the end of their term.

Recipients receive a prize of $500 and are invited to the ACS’s annual banquet, where they are presented with a certificate by the President of the Association in acknowledgement of their accomplishments.

To nominate an individual, group or organization for the 1997 Award of Merit, nominators should send a letter introducing the nominee, the nominee’s curriculum vitae, and letters of support. The nomination deadline is March 1, 1997.

Please send you nominations to: Award of Merit Committee, Association for Canadian Studies, c/o UQAM, P.O. Box 8888, Stn. Centre-Ville, Montréal, Québec H3C 3P8.

Award sponsored by the Royal Bank of Canada Charitable Foundation.
