Among the list of inductees for this year are Canadian prog-rock legends Rush (Limelight, Closer to the Heart, The Spirit of Radio, Tom Sawyer, Subdivisions) and French-Canadian singer-songwriter (and actor, he's a triple-threat!)

Recorded-sound archivist Edward B. Moogk is set to receive the Frank Davies Legacy Award and the Canadian Music Publishers Association Legacy Award will go to influential Quebec, producer and agent Guy Latraverse.
