The Royal Society of Canada 2005 New Fellows: Making a Difference to Lives of Canadians

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - July 7, 2005) - The Royal Society of Canada (RSC), the Canadian Academy of the Sciences and Humanities, has elected sixty new Fellows and three Foreign Fellows to its ranks. In keeping with the motto of the Society, "different paths, one vision", these newly elected Fellows, while coming from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, all are dedicated to achieving excellence in their endeavours, and thus enhancing Canada's competitiveness on a global basis.

As a result of the recent renewal of the Society, we are pleased to announce that Fellows of the RSC will from now on include prestigious and renowned individuals from the Canadian arts community. This year, we are honoured to welcome fifteen such Fellows, who are yet to be selected.

Election to the Royal Society of Canada is the highest honour that can be attained by scholars, artists and scientists in Canada. "The Society is now proud to celebrate the intellectual achievements of the new Fellows", said Gilles Paquet, President of the Society. "We wish to recognize the extraordinary accomplishments of persons of talent, expertise and creativity in all fields, from experimental and applied science to health and medical sciences, and from socials sciences and humanities to the various artistic domains."

Canadians have directly benefited from the outstanding achievements of these individuals. The new Fellows of the Royal Society of Canada are among those who, today, build the world we will live in tomorrow.

This year's new Fellows will be inducted to the Society in a ceremony set to take place on Sunday, November 27, 2005. The complete list of newly elected Fellows and their affiliations is attached. The nomination citation of each of them can be obtained by visiting our Web site at http://www.rsc.ca.
