The Don Hayley Award


This award, created by the CPA in 2021, recognizes outstanding contributions to permafrost engineering over a career. It is named in honour of Donald W. Hayley for his impacts on the field of infrastructure and resource development in permafrost environments in Canada and abroad for over 50 years. While his focus was applied and project oriented, his contributions to knowledge included participation in the International Permafrost Association and numerous publications and procedural documents. The recipient is chosen by a Selection Committee struck by the Board of the CPA or the Board itself.
