Donald M. Stuart Award
Don Stuart worked at Canada packers for 45 years. He retired in 1978 at the age of 60. He began in the general Superintendents office and because of his familiarity with plant operations moved into loss prevention and ultimately insurance to finance the losses. He was a pioneer in self-insurance (1500 vehicles for example), and deductibles, but coupled this with plant inspections (75 production facilities), safety meetings (fire prevention, driver education etc) to achieve the loss prevention necessary to compliment the increased risk taken on by Canada Packers.
Don was very active in the legislative area in Canada and won the Richard Bland award for legislative excellence for RIMS. He was the 1st Canadian to do so.
In 2001, Don won the RIMS Harry and Dorothy Goddell award for outstanding contributions to risk management.
Don wrote many articles for the media and was instrumental in getting new chapters started, the ARM courses into U of T, and contributed Canadian content to the original ARM courses.
The Donald M. Stuart Award was created by the Ontario chapter in 1979, initially to honour Stuart for his contributions to risk management in Canada, and then bestowed to other Canadian risk managers in recognition of outstanding contributions to the community.
