The Canada Prizes are awarded annually by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences for the best scholarly books in the humanities and social sciences that have received funding from the Awards to Scholarly Publications Program (ASPP). Celebrating the best Canadian scholarly books—not simply within a single academic discipline, but across all the disciplines of the humanities and social sciences—the Canada Prizes recognize books that make an exceptional contribution to scholarship, are engagingly written, and enrich the social, cultural and intellectual life of Canada. For more information about the Canada Prizes, please visit our website.

The official announcement of the winners will be on Wednesday, April 22, one week prior to the awards ceremony.
