The award is presented in recognition of outstanding contributions of the nominee in the areas of professional practice, teaching, research and/or regulatory development as they relate to the profession of land reclamation in Canada. Nominees should be widely recognized for their contributions in the field of land reclamation, preferably with a national or international reputation. The contributions of the nominees must span a significant portion of their career. The award will only be presented to an individual person.
For the purpose of this award, the word reclamation will include facets of research, planning, developing, implementing, executing and teaching programs to establish conditions on disturbed or stressed land that will make the land useful.

The award is presented in recognition of major contributions of the nominee to land reclamation, especially through service to foster advances in regulation, reclamation success or development of personnel or students. The efforts for which the individual is nominated do not need to span a major portion of the recipient’s career and may be project focused. A recipient may have made major contributions to CLRA/ACRSD, which has led to the advancement of the association. The recipient may be an individual or agency, institution or company.

One award will be for a poster presentation and one for an oral presentation. Each award will be for $1000 and a one-year membership in the CLRA.
The competition for the awards is held in conjunction with the CLRA/ACRSD Annual Meeting.
