Honours & Awards

From its earliest days, the RAIC has administered awards programs recognizing excellence in the field of architecture. The RAIC Gold Medal, Governor General's Medal, Allied Arts Medal and Student Medal focus on built projects, lifelong achievement, distinguished contributions to the profession, architectural education, and excellence in the allied arts. Supported by debate and documentation, the RAIC awards program seeks to contribute to the development of the discipline and practice of architecture, collective learning on the part of the architectural community, as well as increased public awareness of architecture.

Award recipients are always selected by a jury or "peer assessment" committee.
