When are the Canadian Screen Awards?

Every year, the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television nominates actors, directors, artists, and musicians for their work in film, television, and digital media. The Aurora Teagarden movies air in Canada on the CTV Drama Channel.

A spokesman for the academy said the need to recognize quality art and entertainment is more important than ever.

“During this time of isolation, the arts have served as a necessary connection point that keeps communities together and helps them grow stronger through the power of inspiring storytelling,” said John Young, academy chair. “Through their hard work, these talented 2022 Canadian Screen Award nominees are doing just that. It is a privilege to recognize those who are making a lasting impact when we need it most.”
