Molly Peacock, the series editor of The Best Canadian Poetry in English, called her the “secret national treasure” of Canada, adding “You could say she was our Carol Shields of poetry, though of course she started before Shields, taking the ideas for her poems from dropped threads of domesticity and exalting them with her casual but timeless lines.” In 2012, the Colleen Thibaudeau Outstanding Contribution Award was established by the League of Canadian Poets to recognize a “substantial volunteer project or series of projects that significantly nurture and support poets and poetry across Canada.” A play set to music based on Thibaudeau’s words called Collenning was held at London, Ontario’s Arts Project Theatre in March 2013.
