The Donner Prize was created in 1998 to “recognize and reward the best public policy thinking, writing and research in Canada,” according to a press release announcing the nominations.

The winner will be announced at an event in Toronto on April 28. The winner will receive $35,000 and each of the runners-up will receive $5,000.
