The Lorne Pierce Medal is awarded every two years by the Royal Society of Canada to recognize achievement of special significance and conspicuous merit in imaginative or critical literature written in either English or French. The medal was first awarded in 1926.

The award itself consists of a gold-plated silver medal and is awarded every two years if there is a suitable candidate.

The award bears the name of Lorne Pierce, FRSC (1890–1961), who was editor of Ryerson Press for forty years, contributing greatly to the development and appreciation of Canadian literature, and who originally established the award.
