History of the Award

In 2012, the CSC Multiculturalism Award was renamed the Emerson Douyon Multiculturalism Award. Dr. Douyon was a founding member and first chair of the National and Regional Ethnocultural Advisory Committees (NEAC and REAC). As a volunteer for 17 years with CSC, he advised CSC and helped enhance programs for culturally diverse offender populations. Dr. Douyon retired in 2011 but volunteered to research and write about the history of ethnocultural services in the correctional system. His book, Ethnocultural Minorities and the Canadian Correctional System, was published in 2017. Dr. Douyon passed away in 2016.
