Governor General's Literary Awards

The Governor General's Literary Awards are presented in recognition of the best Anglophone and best Francophone book in each of seven categories: Fiction, Literary Non-fiction, Poetry, Drama, Young People's Literature (Text), Young People's Literature (Illustrated Books) and Translation (from French to English and vice versa).

In 2016, the Governor General's Literary Awards turned 80.

 

In 1936, His Excellency the Right Honourable John Buchan, Lord Tweedsmuir, was approached by members of the Canadian Authors Association to establish a system of literary prizes. He agreed to lend the name of his office in order to stimulate writers and encourage a deeper interest in their work among the general public. As a result of these talks, the Governor General's Literary Prizes were created. In 1959, the Canada Council for the Arts assumed responsibility for the prizes and added prizes for works written in French. In 1987, three categories were added: children's text, children's illustration and translation.

From 1936 through 2016, more than 500 books in English have been recognized as winners of a Governor General's Literary award.
