John Humphrey Freedom Award

The John Humphrey Freedom Award was presented annually by the human rights and democratic development. It was established in 1992.

The award consisted of a grant of C$25,000, as well as a speaking tour of Canadian cities to help increase awareness of the recipient’s human rights work.

It was named in honor of John Peters Humphrey, a Canadian human rights law professor who prepared the first draft of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
