The Donner Prize 2019/2020 ShortlistSee more

TORONTO, April 15, 2020 – Ken Whyte, Chair of the Donner Canadian Foundation, today announced the shortlist for the 2019/2020 Donner Prize, the award recognizing the best public policy book by a Canadian. Given the current situation regarding COVID-19, the gala awards presentation, usually held in the spring will be postponed until the fall. However, given the timeliness of the books selected for the shortlist, it was agreed that the finalists be announced now, to give them as much attention and opportunity for discussion as possible.

“The Donner Prize has always shone a spotlight on books that are exceptional works of public policy research,” said Mr. Whyte. “This year is no exception, with books on topics that are quite literally ripped from the headlines. They will undoubtedly provoke debate. And these books reflect the challenges facing all levels of governance and policy. Policy affects us all, and books that probe hard questions, that suggest guidelines and direction for the future, become essential reading.”
