The Royal Society of Canada (RSC) offers a variety of prestigious medals and awards recognizing outstanding achievements of Canadian researchers.

There are two distinct routes by which nominations for one of the Society’s Medals and Awards may be made.

1. Candidates may be nominated by a Fellow, and the nomination shall be supported by two co-nominators. There is no limit on the number of nominations any Fellow may present each year.

2. Candidates may also be nominated by Institutional Members. The Nominator shall be the President or CEO of the university or organization. The nomination must be supported by two other nominators, neither of whom needs be a Fellow of the Society. Institutional Members may nominate a maximum of one candidate for every Medal or Award being offered each year.

If a nomination is to be made by the President’s Office, the process of securing and acquiring the nomination letter will be facilitated by Brenda Carrier (Manager, Faculty Awards & Prizes).

If you would like to proceed with a nomination under the institutional member category, please contact
