The Frontier Centre for Public Policy wishes proudly to congratulate Wayne Anderson, the Centre’s long-time Chair of the Board (and former Chair of the Board of Governors of the University of Manitoba) on the occasion of receiving an honorary doctor of laws degree from the University of Manitoba yesterday.  

Under the leadership of Wayne Anderson as a Chair, the Frontier Centre expanded its operations beyond Winnipeg to include offices in Saskatchewan and Alberta. The Centre quadrupled the size of its budget with revenues in 2013 of $1.4 million during that time.

Peter Holle, Frontier’s founding president, said “Wayne Anderson understands the important role independent think tanks play in raising the bar on quality public policy discussion.  Frontier is proud to push the boundary on smarter public policy in 14 broad topic areas.  Wayne’s expert guidance and advice has been a central part of the Centre’s success.”

The Frontier Centre for Public Policy is an independent, non-partisan, not-for-profit research and educational organization based in the Canadian prairie provinces. Through numerous publications, media appearances and conferences, Frontier stimulates debate on public policies across Canada, promoting new ideas about wealth-creation and reforms based on market mechanisms. Frontier does not seek or receive government funding.
