Congratulations to Claire Cheung, The Governor General's Academic Medal Recipient

Claire Cheung is the recipient of The Governor General's Academic Medal for the 2016 - 2017 school year.

Lord Dufferin, Canada’s third Governor General after Confederation, created the Academic Medals in 1873 to encourage academic excellence across the nation.  Over the years, they have become the most prestigious award that students in Canadian schools can receive.

For more than 125 years, the Governor General’s Academic Medals have recognized the outstanding scholastic achievements of students in Canada. They are awarded to the student graduating with the highest average from a high school, as well as from approved college or university programs. Pierre Trudeau, Tommy Douglas, Kim Campbell, Robert Bourassa, Robert Stanfield and Gabrielle Roy are just some of the more than 50,000 people who have received the Governor General’s Academic Medal as the start of a life of accomplishment.

 Today, the Governor General’s Academic Medals are awarded at four distinct levels:

 Bronze at the secondary school level;

Collegiate Bronze at the post-secondary, diploma level;

Silver at the undergraduate level; and

Gold at the graduate level.

 Medals are presented on behalf of the Governor General by the school, along with a personalized certificate signed by the Governor General. There is no monetary award associated with the Medal.​
