Walter CRAIG, Department of Mathematics
and Statistics, McMaster University Walter Craig is one of the world leaders in nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs) and their applications, particularly as they apply to the mathematical study of water waves. He has made deep and lasting contributions to other areas of PDEs which are among the milestones in the field including KolmogorovArnoldMoser theory for Hamiltonian PDEs through his work on the small divisor problem, and progress on the NavierStokes and Boltzmann equations. He is the Director of the Applied and Industrial Mathematics Laboratory at McMaster and has provided mentorship to an enormous number of young mathematicians through his academic leadership. 

Lisa JEFFREY, Department of Computer and
Mathematical Sciences, University of Toronto at Scarborough Lisa Jeffrey made fundamental contributions to symplectic geometry, moduli spaces and mathematical physics. Her groundbreaking work with Frances Kirwan led to their celebrated proof of the Witten formulas for stable vector bundles, a landmark achievement in the theory of moduli spaces; their techniques are now standard tools in symplectic geometry and other areas of mathematics and physics. The interdisciplinary nature of Jeffrey's work has an enormous value to both mathematics and theoretical physics, and especially to quantum field theory and string theory. Jeffrey's research accomplishments have been honoured by the AndréAisenstadt Prize, a Sloan Fellowship, a Premier's Research Excellence Award, the McLean Award, the Krieger Nelson Prize, the CoxeterJames Prize, and a Steacie Fellowship.
