Thomas Courchene's recent book, Indigenous Nationals, Canadian Citizens: From First Contact to Canada 150 and Beyond, is one of five finalists for the 2018/19 Donner Prize.

The IIGR published this book with the McGill-Queen’s University Press Policy Studies Series, and Tom gave the IIGR’s 2018 Kenneth MacGregor lecture on the book.

The Donner Prize recognizes the best public policy book by a Canadian.  It “encourages and celebrates excellence in public policy writing by Canadians and recognizes the role good public policy plays in the well-being of Canadians and this country’s success.”

Tom was actually the inaugural Donner Prize recipient, in 1998, for his book "From Heartland to North American Region State: The Social, Fiscal and Federal Evolution of Ontario (with Colin Telmer, Economics Graduate'98).
