Killam Selection Committee

Peer assessment: Fundamental to our decision-making process

The Killam Selection Committee is comprised of distinguished scholars from a range of disciplines. Its members are appointed by the Canada Council for the Arts, taking into account:

  • the recommendations of specialists in the Canadian and international academic and research communities; and
  • fair representation of various scholarly disciplines (humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences and engineering), gender, generations, Canada’s two official languages, Indigenous Peoples, Deaf and disability communities, and the cultural and regional diversity of Canada.

We are committed to equity in all our activities, including the administration of our prizes and awards.

You can find the Canada Council’s policy on disclosure of peer assessment committee members on the Canada Council for the Arts website.
