Covenant Awards


The 43rd Covenant Awards

We are pleased to announce...

The Covenant Awards will be held live and in person this fall in Kitchener-Waterloo, November 17th-19th. We are planning a two-evening event with awards and performances both nights, and a chance to learn and network on the Saturday during the day. More details will follow soon...

We are so happy that we will be able to gather in person again. It was clear through our survey that being together in person is meaningful for our membership - a chance to have face-to-face fellowship as Christ-followers, to pray and worship together, and to celebrate Canadian Christian Music.

Thank you to those who took the time to fill in our survey, and to provide helpful anecdotal feedback. The kind words were also very appreciated. It is worth noting that GMA Canada functions because of volunteer work, with some modest contract work on the operations side (for example, the production of the awards) We appreciate your patience as our timelines are not as consistent as they have been in the past. It is also worth noting that the primary focus of GMA Canada is to facilitate the Covenant Awards. This is the way we believe we can best encourage and amplify Canadian Christian music with the resources we have. We are grateful for your patience as we work toward this year's in-person event. 

Also, one of our members has been working with us to create a new website that will facilitate submissions and voting. Hard work is happening to deliver it soon, and we are really excited about its possibilities. Members will be able to pay their memberships and submission fees on the site, and each have a profile page that they can update with their current bios, music releases, and promo photos. We will also be able to listen to one another's music while we navigate the site. 

Stay tuned...and thanks for your prayers and ongoing support.
