National Affairs Columnist, Globe and Mail

Jeffrey Simpson has been the Globe and Mail's national affairs columnist for more than 25 years. An Officer of the Order of Canada, he is an award-winning author of nine books whose work has won all three of Canada's leading literary prizes - the Governor-General's award for non-fiction book writing, the National Magazine Award for political writing, and the National Newspaper Award for column writing (twice) - as well as the Hyman Solomon Award for excellence in public policy journalism. Mr. Simpson’s latest book, “Chronic Condition: Why Canada's Health Care System Needs to be Dragged into the 21st Century”, examines how Canadian health care is ill-adapted to an aging population, and explores how to tackle this growing crisis. Mr. Simpson regularly contributes to television and radio programs and is a sought-after speaker at major conferences in Canada and abroad.
