The Aurora Awards are for the best works and activities done by Canadians in 2015. There are too many categories to list them all here, so you should go to the Aurora Awards site; but these are the finalists for the Best English Novel:

Drowning in Amber by E.C. Bell
Much Ado about Macbeth by Randy McCharles

Finally DragonCon has launched it’s own Dragon Awards. Details are here.
