Governor General's Medals in Architecture

The RAIC, in partnership with the Canada Council of the Arts, is proud to present the Governor General's Medals in Architecture. 

The objective of the Governor General’s Medals in Architecture is to recognize and celebrate outstanding design in recently completed built projects by Canadian architects. The competition continues a tradition initiated by the Massey Medals in 1950, providing an important source of understanding of the nature of Canadian architecture and the regional, cultural and historic forces expressed in the built environment.

The Governor General's Medals in Architecture are offered every two years (even years).

The call for submissions is currently OPEN until December 10, 2021 at 11:59 PM EST. Check it out to learn more and apply!
