In his memory, the government of Quebec has given his name to one of its prestigious scientific awards, which is given on a yearly basis.

Excerpt from the Prix du Québec website:

"The Prix du Québec are attributed each year as a tribute to scientists who have stood out because of a remarkable career in their area of expertise or to crown a career dedicated to the management and development of research or to the promotion of science and technology."

"The prix Armand-Frappier is awarded to people who have had careers in research and contributed to the development of a research institute or who have dedicated their careers to the administration or promotion of research and in doing so have supported the training of new researchers or promoted the public’s interest in science and technology."
