Governor General Adrienne Clarkson with the editorial staff of the Globe and Mail’s Report on Business – a finalist for the 2004 Michener Award. Photo was taken following a ceremony at Rideau Hall on April 14, 2005.
Report on Business received a Citation of Merit for its investigation of the insurance and mutual funds industries which disclosed improper use of funds and had significant results.
The first award covered the calendar year 1970. Since then, a rich variety of news organizations have had their names inscribed on Michener trophies — print and broadcast, large and small, French and English, East and West. The Michener was also the first national journalism award open to both broadcast and print media. The award goes to the news organization itself, rather than the individual journalists involved in the story.
