CCFA's Governor General's Literary Awards
"The Canada Council for the Arts funds, administers and promotes the Governor General’s Literary Awards. Each winner receives a cheque for $15,000 and a specially-crafted copy of the winning book bound by Montreal bookbinder Lise Dubois. The Governor General also presents certificates to the publishers of the winning books, and the Canada Council will provide each publisher with a $3,000 grant to support promotional activities for the winning book. "
