Terry Fox Humanitarian Awards are open to graduating secondary level students and those currently studying towards a first university degree or diploma in a Canadian post-secondary institution. For students in Quebec, you must be entering 2nd year cégep or university.
To be considered, applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Involvement in voluntary humanitarian work.
- Canadian citizens or landed immigrants.
- Undergraduates studying towards their first university degree or diploma at a Canadian post-secondary institution in Canada.
- Maintain a satisfactory academic standing and continued involvement in voluntary humanitarian and community work.

Dr. Mary Joyce Booth was a devoted and enthusiastic educator, well known in Canadian Parents
for French circles for many years before her death on March 22, 2007. She was passionate about
promoting French-Second-Language (FSL) education. Dr. Booth was a professor of French in the
College of Education, Department of Curriculum Studies, at the University of Saskatchewan in
Saskatoon. She endlessly supported opportunities for young FSL students. She also provided
moral, professional, personal, and financial assistance to all levels of Canadian Parents for French over the years. Her interest in FSL initiatives started early; her passion for language was her life’s work. This award honours her memory.
