Alessia Cara is up for four awards; Best New Artist, Song of the Year and Best Music Video for “1-800-273-8255” with Logic, and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Stay" with Zedd, while The Weeknd's 2016 album Starboy is up for Best Urban Contemporary Album.

Local talent Daniel Caesar is also up for Best R&B; Performance for "Get You" and Best R&B; Album for Freudian.

The list isn't short on big-name Canadian talent, either, with Michael Bublé, Justin Bieber, Leonard Cohen, and Arcade Fire up for awards as well.

The ceremony is set to take place on January 28.
