Marianne Ignace at the Royal Society of Canada • Class of 2020

Marianne Ignace (Departments of Linguistics & Indigenous Studies, Simon Fraser University, and CASCA member) has been named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in the Academy of the Arts and Humanities.

Marianne Ignace is known for her innovative and transdisciplinary approaches to Indigenous language revitalization and documentation, the study of oral traditions and ethnoecology, and what they can teach us if we interweave our understandings of traditional knowledges with western science. As the director of the Indigenous Languages Program at Simon Fraser University, she has built mulitple successful research and educational partnerships in and with Indigenous communities throughout northwestern North America.


Eighty-seven new Fellows in the Academies of Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, and Science have been elected by their peers for their outstanding scholarly, scientific and artistic achievement. Recognition by the RSC is the highest honour an individual can achieve in the Arts, Social Sciences and Sciences.

The RSC is also welcoming 50 new Members of the College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists, that includes top mid-career leaders in Canada. The College provides the RSC with a multigenerational capacity to help Canada and the world address major challenges and seize new opportunities including those identified in emerging fields.

“The Royal Society of Canada is delighted to recognise this year’s exceptional cohort of inductees, as the contributions of these outstanding artists, scholars and scientists have significantly impacted their respective disciplines at both national and international levels.” says RSC President Jeremy McNeil.

The 2020 roster of truly remarkable individuals will be invited to accept membership to the RSC on Friday, November 27. The ceremonies will be uniquely adapted this year to ensure all new members will participate – whether from home, from campus, or in Toronto. We hope you will join us for this stunning landscape of talent, imagination, discipline, and discovery.
