The Marian Engel Award was a Canadian literary award, presented each year from 1986 to 2007 by the Writers' Trust of Canada in memory of the writer Marian Engel. The award was presented to a female Canadian novelist in mid-career for her entire body of work, and accompanied a cash purse of CA$10,000.

In 2003, the Writer's Trust established a companion award, the Timothy Findley Award, to honour male writers. In 2008, the Engel and Findley Awards were discontinued and merged into the new Writers' Trust Engel/Findley Award.
