The Canadian governor general welcomes winners of the 2019 prize cycle, which recognizes 14 titles from an initial submission of some 1,400 books.
Authors, poets, illustrators and actors are among the winners of the 2017 Governor General’s Literary Awards for Canadian writing in French and English.

‘To question who we are and what we aspire to be,’ Canada’s eight-decade-old literary awards announce their 2016 winners in French and English.
Opening a ninth decade, the high-visibility Canadian Governor General’s award series in literature has seven categories, each in both French and English.
