“The creations of the twelve recipients of the Governor General’s Medal in Architecture make us appreciate the degree to which Canadian architects have transformed the places where we live, work, share culture and come together into a celebration of beauty and human genius.”

Her Excellency the Right Honourable
Michaëlle Jean,
Governor General of Canada


The Governor General’s Medals in Architecture recognize outstanding achievement in recently built projects by Canadian architects. This program, created by the RAIC, contributes to the development of the discipline and practice of architecture, and increases public awareness of architecture as a vital cultural force in Canadian society. These awards are administered jointly with the Canada Council for the Arts, which is responsible for the adjudication process and contributes to the publication highlighting the medal winners.

The Governor General’s Medals in Architecture will be presented October 16, 2008 in Ottawa at Rideau Hall by Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean, Governor General of Canada.

The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada would also like to acknowledge the continued support of McGraw-Hill Construction, who have been a sponsor of the Governor General's Medals in Architecture for several years.
