He was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2012. Jeff’s other honors include the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy (2017), Jefferson Award’s S. Roger Horchow Award for Greatest Public Service by a Private Citizen (2015), a career tribute at the Gotham Independent Film Awards (2012), and the John W. Gardner Leadership Award (2012).
