CANADIAN AUTHORS ASSOCIATION'S
AWARD FOR FICTION
1975-2002

In 1975 the CAA reinstated its awards for literary achievement, a program originally begun in 1937 with the creation of the Governor-General's medals for literature. The objective of reinstatement of the awards was to honour writing that "achieves literary excellence without sacrificing popular appeal." Throughout their existence, the CAA Awards for Adult Literature have been designed as objective rewards for excellence. Judging is carried out by panels selected in confidence. No short lists are published. The Journal (CBC) has referred to them as "The major awards given annually by authors to authors." The CAA Award for Fiction was funded by Harlequin Enterprises of Toronto from 1975 through 1997, for 1998 by Chapters and, beginning in 2000 by MOSAID Technology, Inc. The winners of the Award for Fiction are given in the following table.
