We are working hard reimagining the Pat Morris Prize to find a new way of celebrating the life, passions and aspirations of Pat Morris. A new program, focused on making a difference within communities, will be launched Spring 2020.
The prior recipients of the Pat Morris Prize are a stellar group of young people embarking on their future. We wish them extraordinary success in all that they dream and all that they set out to achieve.
Pat Morris, née Ratcliffe, was born in Peace River, Alberta in 1936, the third of three children. She and her family moved to Kimberley, BC, where her father took work as a miner when she was a young child. They lived in the small mountain town for which the Foundation is named until 1957, following her marriage to Hugh Morris. She returned to Kimberley in 1966 with her new family and resided there until 1973, when they moved to Vancouver.
