Royal Society of Canada

The Royal Society is the recognized pre-eminent body of independent scholars, researchers and creative people in Canada whose Fellows comprise a collegium that can provide intellectual leadership for the betterment of Canada and the world. The Royal Society is comprised of three Academies, Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, and Science, as well as the College of New Scholars, Artists, and Scientists.

Election to Fellowship in the Society is the highest academic accolade in Canada that is available to scientists and scholars.  The Fellowship comprises four categories: Honorary Fellows. Regularly Elected Fellows, Specially Elected Fellows and Foreign Fellows. Fellows are elected to one of the three Academies. A separate election is held for membership in the College of New Scholars, Artists, and Scientists.
