About Us

Who We Are


The Awards for Excellence in Education is a program generously sponsored by The W. Garfield Weston Foundation and by the Imperial Oil Foundation and administered by the School Performance Studies department of the Fraser Institute. The Fraser Institute is an independent research and educational research organization with offices in Calgary, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. We are a federally chartered non-profit organization, with international partners in over 70 countries. The institute depends entirely on contributions from thousands of individuals, organizations, and foundations. In order to protect its independence, the Institute does not accept grants from government or contracts for research. Visit the Fraser Institute website at http://www.fraserinstitute.org/.
