The Arthur Ellis Awards are a group of Canadian literary awards, presented annually by the Crime Writers of Canada for the best Canadian crime and mystery writing published in the previous year. The award is presented at a gala dinner in the year following publication.

The crime genre includes crime, detective, espionage, mystery, suspense, and thriller writing, as well as fictional or factual accounts of criminal doings and crime-themed literary works.

The awards are named for Arthur Ellis, the pseudonym of Canada’s official hangman. The award statue itself is wooden model of a hanging man. The arms and legs move when the statue’s string is pulled.
