A message from the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame:


“In solidarity with our festival partners, and with regard to the health and safety of the community at large, the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame (CSHF) will be postponing the induction celebration of Kim Mitchell and Pye Dubois to September, as part of the new dates for Canadian Music Week.  While we continue to monitor the developments of the coronavirus, CSHF remains steadfast in its commitment to finding new opportunities to honour 2020 inductee Ron Hynes, and more incredible Canadian songwriters and songs to be announced soon.

In times of adversity and social distancing, songs have the power to uplift us, connect us, and offer comfort and joy.  We are deeply saddened by the impact of the virus on so many music festivals and closures of cultural establishments including the National Music Centre, home of the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame; but look forward to when we can come together again in the shared experience of music and song.”
