The chair of the Halifax JUNO committee Allegra Swanson said in the release the music scene in Halifax “has grown immensely” since 2006.

“Music is at the core of our identity as a region, dating back to our Mi’kmaw ancestors and over 50 historic Black communities across the province,” Swanson said.  “The depth of emerging talent in Halifax is vast and exciting.”

When the JUNOs were last in the city, iconic Canadian-American actress Pamela Anderson hosted the ceremony.

Since then, the awards have travelled coast-to-coast.

This year’s event is being hosted in Edmonton, AB, beginning on Thursday, and Nova Scotia-born Rich Aucoin is one of its presenters.
