From 2000 to 2004, Duguid was chairman of Manitoba's Clean Environment Commission, which is responsible for carrying out public hearings for major development projects, including forestry and hydro-electric development.

From 2004 to 2009, Duguid was the founding president of the International Centre for Infectious Diseases in Winnipeg. Duguid had been part of the original task force that set out to make recommendations to improve Canada's response to infectious disease outbreaks in the wake of the SARS epidemic of 2003, especially in Toronto. The task force recommended the establishment of ICID and the Public Health Agency of Canada, with both to be located in Winnipeg.
