Capt. Joseph-Elzéar Bernier Medal

2018 Recipient - Laureen Harper

The RCGS is awarding the Joseph-Elzéar Bernier Medal to Laureen Harper, a powerful advocate for the stewardship of the Canadian landscape, of which she has firsthand knowledge through her own travels and exploration. A Fellow and a fervent supporter of the Society, Laureen has lent her talents to helping foster connections between the Society and other like-minded organizations, most notably the Trans Canada Trail (TCT).  The resulting partnership between the Society and the TCT led to the production of a well-received dedicated issue of Canadian Geographic and Géographica, among other collaborative initiatives. Laureen Harper continues to be a major facilitator for and supporter of the RCGS, its leadership and prospective partners.
