At our 2014 Annual General Meeting, THRAC members voted to establish the Albert J Lin Human Rights Award. The goal of this award was:

The award is given in honour of a man who is a living example of this commitment, and who has given his life seeking to realize these values in Taiwan and in Canada. 
The award shall be made annually on the recommendation of the executive of THRAC, in consultation with Dr. Lin, and previous presidents of THRAC. Nominations for the award may be made by any member of THRAC.
