The nominees for the 2004 Governor General's Awards for Literary Merit were announced on October 26. The children's literature winners were announced on November 15, and the other winners were announced on November 16. The winners received a cheque for $15,000 and a specially crafted copy of their book bound by master bookbinder Pierre Ouvrard.

The 2004 awards marked the first time that the children's literature awards were presented separately from the adult awards; they were presented at a special ceremony dedicated to promoting children's literature.
