Accepted by Frank at the university’s 2014 convocation ceremonies, the honorary degree is intended to recognize citizens who have made a substantial contribution to Lakehead University and its broader community. With one of the most significant Aboriginal student communities in the country, Lakehead University recognized the impact of the work Frank has done with respect to Canadian First Nations, including his negotiations leading to the settlement agreement in 2005 relating to Indian Residential Schools, and his 2013 independent review for the Ontario Government on First Nations representation on Ontario juries.
