Who We Are

Established in 2012 at the University of British Columbia, the CAD $100,000 Allard Prize for International Integrity is made possible through the generous contributions of Mr. Peter A. Allard, Q.C. This prestigious award is conferred every two years upon an individual, movement, or 
organization that has exhibited remarkable bravery and visionary leadership in the relentless pursuit of combating corruption or safeguarding human rights. Of particular significance is their dedication to advancing ideals of transparency, accountability, and adherence to the Rule of Law. 

Having made its debut in 2012, the Allard Prize embarked on its journey towards autonomy from the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia, a transition that reached its culmination on June 21, 2019.

What We Do

The Allard Prize for International Integrity is a prestigious award established in 2012 to recognize and honor individuals, movements,
or organizations that have demonstrated exceptional courage and leadership in the fight against corruption and the protection of human rights. This significant prize, valued at CAD $100,000, is awarded biennially.
The Allard Prize places a particular emphasis on those who have made significant contributions to advancing transparency, accountability, and the Rule of Law. It acknowledges the efforts of those who work tirelessly to promote integrity, expose corruption, and uphold fundamental human rights.
Beyond the recognition of outstanding achievements, the Allard Prize also serves as a platform for raising awareness about corruption issues and 
human rights challenges. The prize organizers host competitions that share personal stories related to these matters, aiming to inspire others by highlighting narratives of courage, perseverance, and integrity.
Furthermore, the Allard Prize has transitioned from being under the purview of the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia to operating independently, signifying its continued growth and impact on the global stage.
