Canadian authors

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

What are the best books written by Canadian authors (preferably more famous ones)? I have to use a book by a Canadian author for my big English project this year,and I thought this would be the best place to look for people with literary tastes that would be similar to mine.
I'm thinking of using Douglas Coupland, or possibly Timothy Findley, but I've never read anything by either of them other than short quotes. Is there anyone else that you can think of, and if you've read books by either of the ones that I've named, which book do you recommend?
