Fraser Institute ranked No. 1 think-tank in Canada; and among Top 25 globally for public policy research
The University of Pennsylvania's Global Go-To Think-Tank Index, a recently released global survey of close to 1,500 scholars, policy makers, and journalists, ranked the Fraser Institute No. 1 among 97 think-tanks in Canada, for the third year in a row. The report also named the Fraser Institute as the only Canadian organization in the Top 25 leading think-tanks in the world in 2010, out of a global group of 6,480 think-tanks.
The Institute ranked fifth in the world for Health Policy Research in 2010, ahead of the Harvard School of Public Health's Department of Health Policy and Management; 10th in the world for Most Innovative Policy Proposals; and 17th in the world for Greatest Impact On Public Policy in 2010. That puts us in the top one third of one per cent of think-tanks worldwide.
Founded in 1974, the Fraser Institute is one of Canada's oldest independent policy research organizations and Canada's only national think-tank, with offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal. The Fraser Institute is also Canada's only international think-tank, leading the establishment and coordination of a global network of allied organizations now in more than 80 countries and territories around the world through our Economic Freedom Network.
As a non-profit, non-partisan, non-government, and non-industry voice, the Fraser Institute offers an independent contribution to the public policy discussion in Canada. Our evidence-based research helps citizens and policy makers make more informed policy choices.
With the help of our supporters, we provide ideas to advance prosperity, security, and freedom so that we can improve the quality of life for Canadians and others around the world.
