The Greatest Literature of Canada
The selection of literature from specific countries or regions is based on the continuing research carried out for our flagship list, The Greatest Literature of All Time, and all our other Greatest lists. It is also informed by the additional literary assessments of local readers, writers, critics and scholars.
On this list are literary works of all types, genres, cultures and periods by authors primarily associated with Canada.
This list focuses on major creative—mainly fictional—works, although some shorter or nonfiction writing of literary significance may also be included.
