Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, and More Nominated for Juno Awards!

Many of our favourite artists call Canada home, from icons like Celine Dion and superstars like Justin Bieber. There’s just something about the great white north that seems to surprise us with amazingly talented artists every year. Maybe it’s the air up there.
