Dr. Jaymie Matthews of the University of British Columbia will receive the Qilak Award on Wednesday, 1 June, at 12:00 pm.

The Qilak Award recognizes individual Canadian residents, or teams of residents, who have made an outstanding contribution either to the public understanding and appreciation of astronomy in Canada or to informal astronomy education in Canada.
After obtaining his Ph.D. from the University of Western Ontario in 1987, Dr. Matthews held positions at Western and l'Université de Montréal before moving to the University of British Columbia as a Killam Postdoctoral Fellow in 1988. He obtained tenure at UBC in 2000 and has been a full professor there since 2008.
Dr. Matthews's dedication and boundless enthusiasm for communicating with the public about astronomy are illustrated by the dozens of outreach activities in which he participates annually, ranging from public presentations, to radio interviews, to campus tours, to TV show consultations. Beyond his legendary teaching reputation at UBC, he has given courses aimed at younger children as well as special lectures in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, the First Nations Summer Science Program, and the Canadian Association of Physics (CAP) undergraduate lecture series, among many others. In recognition of these efforts, Dr. Matthews received the CAP Education Medal in 2002, was named an officer of the Order of Canada in 2006, and received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012.

Here's a bit more information about Dr. Jaymie Matthews (from the biography attached to the July 18, 2016 Café Scientifique notice),
Jaymie Matthews is an astrophysical "gossip columnist" who unveils the hidden lifestyles of stars. Professor Matthews is also an "astro-paparazzo" who spies on planets around other stars that might be homes for alien celebrities. Maybe not Vulcans, but the discovery of microbes on another world would make them newsmakers of the century.
Matthews is a Professor of Astrophysics in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of British Columbia [UBC]. He leads the MOST (Microvariability and Oscillations of STars) mission - Canada's first space telescope - and is an expert in the fields of stellar seismology (using the vibrations of vibrating stars to probe their hidden interiors and histories) and exoplanets. He received his B.Sc. degree at the University of Toronto, and his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees at the University of Western Ontario.
In 2006, Prof. Matthews was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada, and in 2012, he received a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
Prof. Matthews is a member of the Executive Council for NASA's Kepler mission hunting for Earth-sized exoplanets in the Habitable Zones of their stars. He's on the Science Team for BRITE Constellation (BRIght Target Explorer) - a Canadian-Austrian-Polish satellite mission to monitor the brightest stars in the night sky. Matthews was elected Vice-President of IAU (International Astronomical Union) Commission G4 on Pulsating Stars in 2015. He is an Associate Editor of the astronomy journal Frontiers, and has co-authored more than 200 refereed scientific papers.
Matthews served on the Boards of Directors of Vancouver's H.R. MacMillan Space Centre and Youth Science Canada, receiving the Canada-Wide Science Fair Alumni Award in 2015. He holds a 1999 Killam Prize for teaching excellence in the UBC Faculty of Science, and the 2002 Teaching Prize of the Canadian Association of Physicists. Matthews is a co-founder of and instructor for UBC's Science 101 course for disadvantaged residents of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. He was a "Human Library Book" in Surrey, BC where "readers" could reserve him to ask about science or life, and a storyteller at the Kootenay Storytelling Festival in Nelson, BC. Matthews was featured in the Discovery Channel series "Light: More Than Meets The Eye", and the documentary "LUNARCY! He's a producer and writer for Knowledge (BC's educational TV network) of Space Suite - a series of astronomy/space 'music videos'. Matthews was awarded the Canadian Astronomical Society's Qilak Award for education and outreach in 2016. Qilak is an Inuit word for the "canopy of the heavens" or the sky overhead.
