The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) and the Canada Council for the Arts (CCA) has named the recipients of the 2022 Governor General’s Medals in Architecture.

Recognizing excellence in recently built and designed projects by Canadian architects, this year’s competition continues a tradition initiated by the Massey Medals in 1950. It provides a source of understanding of the nature of Canadian architecture and the regional, cultural, and historic forces expressed in the built environment.

The 12 projects selected represent a variety of building types and sizes—from a commercial mixed-use space to various institutional building configurations. They include a reimagined theatre, a forest pavilion, a stormwater facility, and a history and dialogue centre.

These winning projects are located in five Canadian provinces, along with two in the U.S.
