Rush will be presented with the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. The presentation will take place on March 14th at the JUNO Gala Dinner & Awards in Hamilton, Ontario. The JUNO Awards are the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys.

The award, named after Allan Waters, the late executive of the CHUM Ltd. media empire, recognizes outstanding Canadian artists whose contributions have positively enhanced the social fabric of Canada. Rush was chosen because they exemplify the spirit of the award through their music and devotion to philanthropy and humanitarian causes.

In a statement the band says, “We are sincerely grateful to be recognized as this year’s recipients of the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award. We are proud, honored and humbled to be in the company of all Canadians who find it within their hearts to help those in need.”
