About the CMS Fellows Program
The Fellows Program was instituted to recognize mathematicians who have made very significant contributions to the profession and to the Canadian Mathematical Society. The Fellowship recognizes CMS members who have made excellent contributions to mathematical research, teaching, or exposition; as well as having distinguished themselves in serve to Canada’s mathematical community.

Induction to the Inaugural Class of Fellows was based upon CMS members who have been a recipient of a CMS prize or award for outstanding contributions for research, education, exposition or service to the Canadian mathematical community or to the CMS. The CMS Fellows Selection Committee will be responsible for the approval of future CMS Fellows.
