    Each year, Couchiching presents the Couchiching Award for Public Policy
Leadership to a nationally recognized Canadian who has demonstrated a
particular kind of leadership: someone who has made an impact in public policy
for Canada or for a community, often in the face of public opposition. This
year, the Couchiching Institute of Public Affairs is proud to present its
Award for Excellence in Public Policy Leadership to J. Fraser Mustard, founder
of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, who has devoted the better
part of his career to emphasizing the importance of early childhood
    Throughout his career, Fraser Mustard influenced health policy in Canada
by serving on many federal and provincial committees, councils and royal
commissions. He has received many awards and honorary degrees, including the
Gairdner International Award, the Canada Council Izaak Walton Killam Memorial
Prize, and the William J. Dawson Medal of the Royal Society of Canada. He is a
Companion of the Order of Canada and a Laureate of the Canadian Medical Hall
of Fame.
    Fraser Mustard's many accomplishments have relied on his outstanding
ability to establish connections, networks and interdisciplinary research.
Those who have worked with him are awed by his energy, vision, insight, and
leadership ability.
