The Fraser Institute [founded in 1974 by Michael Walker, an economist from the University of Western Ontario] is a public policy think tank and registered charity. It has been described as politically conservative and libertarian. The Fraser Institute is headquartered in Vancouver, with offices also located in Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal, and ties to a global network of 80 think-tanks through the Economic Freedom Network. The Fraser Institute describes itself as "an independent international research and educational organization", and envisions "a free and prosperous world where individuals benefit from greater choice, competitive markets, and personal responsibility". --Wikipedia
