Announcement, Industry Listing.

In partnership with the Walrus Foundation, the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, today announced that CBC’s Piya Chattopadhyay will be the head judge for the Lieutenant Governor’s Visionaries Prize.

This prize is an opportunity for innovative thinkers across Ontario to present their solutions to the great challenges facing Ontarians and Canadians over the next fifty years—from evolving environmental pressures to the future of governance in the twenty-first century

Following the close of submissions in March 2017, the jury will identify thirty-six finalists in six categories. Finalists will publicly defend their policy solutions before an audience at moderated sessions across Ontario in fall 2017. The six winners will formally receive the Lieutenant Governor’s Visionaries Prize in October 2017.
