The Canada Prizes are awarded annually to the best scholarly books in the humanities and social sciences that have received funding from the Awards to Scholarly Publications Program (ASPP). The winning books make an exceptional contribution to scholarship, are engagingly written, and enrich the social, cultural and intellectual life of Canada.

Michael Asch is a professor of anthropology at the University of Victoria and a professor emeritus at the University of Alberta. In 2001, his contributions to the field of applied anthropology were honoured by Canadian Anthropology Society with the Weaver-Tremblay award. He has served as President of the Canadian Anthropological Society, Senior Research Associate for Anthropology on the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples and as Director of the Dene/Metis Mapping Project. He is currently a member of the board of advisors of Smithsonian Folkways Records. He is the author of many books, including Home and Native Land, Aboriginal and Treaty Rights in Canada and, most recently, On Being Here to Stay.
