Professor Mario Seccareccia received the Senate Sesquicentennial Medal by the Senate of Canada in commemoration of the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the Senate of Canada and in recognition of his valuable service to the nation and for the quality of his academic work in the field of heterodox economics and for his intellectual support to the community.
It should be noted that Mr. Seccareccia arrived at the Department of Economics in 1978, so in 2018, he will be celebrating his forty years of service for the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Ottawa. This is all the more remarkable since Mr. Seccareccia will be promoted to the rank of Professor Emeritus on May 1st, 2018.
We wish him our most sincere congratulations and take this opportunity to thank him for his generous intellectual contribution to the Department of Economics at the Faculty of Social Sciences and to the University of Ottawa. The Faculty is honored to count him among its Emeritus Professors!
