Welcome to The Royal Conservatory’s online information resource for Convocation ceremonies. Here you will find a wealth of logistical information, helpful tips, and background material.

In celebration of our ARCT graduates from across Canada and the United States, you have the option of attending the Convocation ceremony in Toronto, Vancouver or Calgary.

The Convocation ceremonies are wonderful community events that include celebration of our Gold Medal Award Winners, presentation of diplomas, conferring of honorary degrees and outstanding musical performances! The ceremonies are followed by special receptions for Gold Medalists, Graduates, teachers and guests.

As a part of our Convocation ceremonies we also celebrate our Teachers of Distinction.
