Toronto will host next year’s Juno Week celebrations, the 40th anniversary of Canada’s top music award, the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences has announced.

The awards will be held from March 21-27. The televised portion of the show will be broadcast live from the Air Canada Centre on March 27 on the CTV network.

The Junos were last held in Toronto in 2000.

“The Juno Awards has had such a significant impact on Canada and the Canadian music industry over the past 40 years. There is much to celebrate and reflect upon within four decades of accomplishments, and we can’t think of a more fitting city to host the festivities than Toronto,” CARAS president Melanie Berry said in a statement.

“Toronto is sure to put its own vibrant and distinct personality to Canada’s most recognizable music awards show -- a perfect convergence of music, culture, diversity and CARAS said Toronto was selected to host the awards “based on a strong bid and the solid partnership presented by the Province of Ontario, City of Toronto and the private sector led by Tourism Toronto.”
