The CanComicsWiki Awards are accolades awarded by this wiki in a variety of categories each year. The goal of these awards is to recognize the independent comic creators in Canada who've been most enjoyed by fans so their work can reach a larger audience.

These awards are voted on by the general public and are currently the only fan voted awards for independent comic books in Canada. While other awards are chosen by industry experts to judge the artistic nature of the work, our awards are an indication of people's enjoyment of the work. Voting occurs in December of each year and are announced in January. Each nominated work must be listed on the wiki to be eligible for an award.
