Governor General's Award

The Governor General's Academic Medal

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 education institution can receive. The Secondary Schools Bronze Medal is awarded to the student who achieves the highest average upon graduation from a secondary school.

The average includes all grade 11 and grade 12 courses as listed on the student's official transcript of grades issued by the ministry of education. The average cannot be anticipated; it must be calculated based on final results after provincial examinations, where the ministry of education requires final exams.

Equitable access for the entire student population is an important aspect of the medal's value. Regardless of the stream or subjects chosen, all students are eligible for consideration upon graduation.
