TORONTO, CA (CelebrityAccess) – Bell Media and CTV have today (June 7) announced a new multi-year partnership with Canada’s Walk of Fame to become the official and exclusive broadcaster of the awards.
The new partnership, brokered by Canada’s Walk of Fame CEO Jeffrey Latimer and Bell Media President Randy Lennox, comes just in time for the awards ceremony’s 20th anniversary milestone this December.
“Canada’s Walk of Fame is thrilled the awards are back on CTV,” said Latimer. “This is such a monumental year for us as we celebrate our 20th anniversary and continue to deepen our commitment and broaden our impact across Canada. This year’s awards show will be a spectacular celebration of great Canadians, including our 2018 inductees and those inducted since Canada’s Walk of Fame was founded in 1998. It will be a celebration of what is possible, what can be achieved – a celebration of the power of Canadian potential.”
For 20 years, Canada’s Walk of Fame has continued to recognize Canadians who have excelled on national and international stages in their respective fields, including music, sports, film and television, literary, visual and performing arts, science, innovation, philanthropy, and social justice.
“We are proud to honour the ever-growing group of notable Canadians and share their achievements and impact on Canadian society with our viewers,” added Lennox. “With the return of Canada’s Walk of Fame Awards to CTV, we cement our commitment to celebrating extraordinary Canadian talent and their influence and impact both in Canada and around the world.”
The 2018 Canada’s Walk of Fame Awards broadcast is slated for December 2018. Past inductees include: Ryan Reynolds, Bryan Adams, Pamela Anderson, Margaret Atwood, Jeanne Beker, Jim Carrey, Kim Cattrall, Linda Evangelista, Celine Dion, Louise Arbour, Christopher Plummer, Michael J. Fox, and Terry Fox.
