The John Orr Award is the highest tribute given by the Toronto Branch of the Queen’s University Alumni Association. It rewards significant contribution to the life and welfare of the University. Originally called the Toronto Award, it was renamed in 1966 after Dr. John Orr, MD’23, to honour his valuable contributions to the Medical Faculty and the University during his lifetime (1899-1965).

An independent jury will select winners from all completed submissions received. You will be contacted by the Toronto Branch President if your nominee is successful and accepted the award nomination.
