The Francesco Giuseppe Bressani Literary Prize is a biennial award created by the Italian Cultural Centre Society of Vancouver in 1986. It was created to promote and honour Canadian writers of Italian descent. There are $1000 prizes for poetry (at least 20 poems), fiction (minimum 50 pages) and short fiction (minimum 8000 characters).[1] A fourth "special category" prize has been given out since 2006.

Works are eligible if published from January 1 of one year to March 31 of the next year. Submissions must be from Canadian citizens or permanent residents of 16 or older who have at least one parent or grandparent born in Italy, and can be in Italian, English or French.[2] The Prize is named after the Italian Jesuit missionary Francesco Giuseppe Bressani. The Prize was discontinued in 1995, but the Italian Cultural Centre apppointed a new F.G. Bressani Committee in 2000 when it was reinstated.
