The awards, now their 23rd year, celebrate the best Canadian screenwriting talent behind some of the most engaging and powerful Canadian-made TV, films, documentaries and web series.
A gala ceremony will honour the nominees and announce the winners on April 29, 2019 at the TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning’s Koerner Hall in Toronto.
