The Writers’ Trust Engel/Findley Award is a Canadian literary award, presented by the Writers' Trust of Canada to an established Canadian author to honour their body of work.

Presented for the first time in 2008 under the name Notable Author Award, the award was created by merging the formerly separate Marian Engel Award and Timothy Findley Award, which were presented to female and male nominees respectively. The award was subsequently renamed back to Engel/Findley.

The award is presented to one author, who may be either a man or a woman, annually. The award comes with a monetary prize of $25,000.
