The Canada Council for the Arts Molson Prizes are awarded to two persons – one in the arts and the other in the social sciences and humanities, who have distinguished themselves by their outstanding achievements. The prizes are intended to encourage ongoing contributions to Canada’s cultural and intellectual heritage.
These prizes are administered by the Canada Council in cooperation with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
Nominations must be submitted to the Council by a third party (individual or organization). A peer assessment committee will select the recipients from among all the nominations received.
