Congratulations to Professors Ryan Balot and Jessica Green, both included as new members in the Royal Society of Canada’s (RSC) Class of 2023.

Professor and Chair Ryan Balot is among the new Fellows elected by peers for outstanding scholarly, scientific and artistic achievement. Recognition by the RSC as a Fellow is the highest honour an individual can achieve in the Arts, Social Sciences and Sciences.

The RSC also welcomed new Members of the RSC College including Professor Jessica Green. The College consists of mid-career leaders who provide the RSC with a multigenerational capacity to help Canada and the world address major challenges and seize new opportunities including those identified in emerging fields.

The Royal Society of Canada is very proud to welcome today an imposing group of inspiring scholars, artists and creators whose peers have recognized their exceptional contributions to the world of science and culture and to the well-being of our society. The impact of their work will continue to be felt in the development of public policies for years to come, while adding greatly to the enrichment of public life,” said Alain-G. Gagnon, president of the RSC.

On Thursday, November 16, 2023, the RSC will welcome the 2023 new Members of the RSC College and on Friday, November 17, the Class of 2023 new RSC Fellows will be inducted for outstanding research and scholarly achievement. The ceremonies will be held in person in Waterloo, Ontario.
