RSC: The Academies of Arts, Humanities and Sciences of Canada  is the senior national body of distinguished Canadian scholars, artists and scientists.  It is Canada’s national academy.  The primary objective of the RSC is to promote learning and research in the arts and sciences.  The RSC consists of nearly 2000 Fellows, men and women who are selected by their peers for outstanding contributions to the natural and social sciences, in the arts and in the humanities.

As Canada’s national academy, the RSC exists to recognize academic excellence, to advise governments and organizations, and to promote Canadian culture.
