Nominations Open

Governor General's Performing Arts Awards

Nominations for the Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards are made by members of the general public. Submit a nomination for the 2025 awards by December 8, 2023.

The Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards celebrate achievement in all forms of the performing arts in Canada, including Dance, Stages (formerly theatre), Popular Music (i.e.: jazz, rock, folk), Classical Music, and Screens and Voices (formerly broadcasting/film).

The Award for Lifetime Achievement is granted to established Canadian artists who have made a marked contribution to the performing arts in Canada, and in some cases, internationally, and who have developed a significant body of work.

Please note that each nomination is viable for three years (meaning it is presented to the juries for three cycles). If the nomination is not successful after this time, the foundation will be directly in touch with you about making a renewal. We are happy to accept updated nominations during the three-year period should your candidate experience a major achievement in that time.

Screens and Voices

Notice: pursuant to a review by the GGPAA Foundation board of directors, it was determined that the category of Broadcasting and Film should be called Screens and Voices and will capture all aspects of screens, films shown in cinemas, streaming, podcasting, and traditional broadcasting such as radio and television.


Notice: Pursuant to a review by the GGPAA Foundation board of directors, it was determined that the category of Theatre should be renamed to create a more encompassing understanding of who may be considered for the Award. The category will now be called Stages and will include, but not be limited to, traditional theatre, experimental theatre, comedy, improv, puppetry, circus and similar live performances. Please note it does not include live musical performances. All concert considerations will take place in the Classical Music and Popular Music categories.
