The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) has announced the jury for the Governor General’s Medals in Architecture.

The biennial awards recognize and celebrate excellence in recently built projects by Canadian architects. The 2024 competition will continue a tradition initiated by the Massey Medals in 1950, providing an important source of understanding of the nature of Canadian architecture and the regional, cultural, and historic forces expressed in the built environment.

This year, following protocols by the Canada Council for the Arts who administers the awards program jointly with the RAIC, the jury was appointed following the close of the submissions, rather than before as in previous years.

The following are the jury members for 2024.
