Even before the first of the events for the Ruckus on the Edge JUNO week begins, the site for next year's JUNO Awards has been set.
At an annual dinner held by the Toronto Board of Trade Monday night, Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty announced the 2011 JUNO Awards are heading to Toronto.
In a follow-up statement to the media from both CTV and the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), the president of CARAS, Melanie Berry, added to the news, highlighting the JUNOs 40-year anniversary in 2011.
"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," said Berry.
In the same release, Toronto mayor David Miller showed his enthusiasm for the future hosting duties.
"The 2011 JUNO Awards, in combination with winning the rights to host a number of other important international events, will boost Toronto's economy and enhance the strength of our vital tourism sector," stated Miller.
Meanwhile, preparations for the 2010 JUNO Awards gala, to be held April 18 at Mile One Centre, continue in St. John's.
