Governor General's Academic Medals

The Governor General’s Academic Medal was first awarded in 1873 by the Earl of Dufferin, and has since become one of the most prestigious awards that a student in a Canadian educational institution can receive. The Governor General of Canada continues this tradition of encouraging scholarship across the nation and recognizing outstanding students.

The Silver and Gold medals are awarded to the undergraduate and graduate students who achieve the highest academic standing upon graduation from a bachelor degree program and at the graduate level.
