Governor General's Award

The Governor General’s Literary Awards - known affectionately as "the GGs" - were first awarded in 1936. Now Canada’s premier national literary awards, the GGs had a modest start: in the first year, the literary awards were given for works in English only, in just two categories (fiction and non-fiction), and with no cash prize. Today, they are awarded in seven categories, in both French and English, with a $25,000 prize.
