Program Description

The Governor General’s Medals in Architecture recognize and celebrate outstanding design in recently built projects by Canadian architects. The competition continues a tradition initiated by the Massey Medals in 1950. This tradition has provided an important source of understanding of the nature of Canadian architecture and the regional, cultural and historic forces which it expresses.

The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, with the RAIC College of Fellows, is responsible for the organization and administration of the competition. The Canada Council for the Arts is responsible for selecting and administering the peer assessment jury. The Council also makes a financial contribution to the publication on the laureates.
