On September 7, members of the Royal Society of Canada (RSC) informed the public of the election of Marie Beaulieu for her excellence in academic and scientific achievements in the field of mistreatment of older adults. In the notice describing Marie Beaulieu, the RSC emphasised her contribution to the development of knowledge in this field and to the recognition of this social problem in terms of intervention practices, advocacy and policies. 

This honour is the most significant award that can be won by an academic working in the fields of arts, literature and science. As part of the annual Celebration of Excellence event, the RSC Academies will host the 89 newly elected members, including Ms. Beaulieu, on November 24, 2017, at the Fairmont Hotel in Winnipeg, Manitoba. 

Founded in 1882, its mission is “to recogni[s]e scholarly, research and artistic excellence, to advise governments and organi[s]ations, and to promote a culture of knowledge and innovation in Canada and with other national academies around the world." (RSC's Website). Maryse Lassonde, President of the RSC, declared that « during the 150th anniversary celebrations of our country, we are particularly proud of these outstanding scholars, artists and scientists whose career contributions have been extraordinary. »

The entire team of the Chair wishes to congratulate Marie Beaulieu for this wonderful acknowledgement.
