Nominations were announced by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television on February 7. Early coverage of the nominations highlighted the fact that the Best Picture category consisted entirely of French-language films from Quebec, with not a single English-language film named in the category.
The awards in many of the technical and craft categories were presented in a series of advance Canadian Screen Week galas in the week before the main ceremony. The gala for non-fiction programming was held on March 26, the gala for creative fiction storytelling was held on March 27, the gala for digital production was held on March 28, and the gala for film craft categories was held in the afternoon of March 31.
The broadcast ceremony had no overall host, with the Academy clarifying that the decision was made before the Academy Awards made the same announcement. The ceremony did, however, included pretaped comedy segments from performers such as the casts of Baroness von Sketch Show and Letterkenny, as well as a short welcome introduction by actor Andrew Phung and drag queen Tynomi Banks.
In film, The Great Darkened Days (La grande noirceur) was the year's big winner with five awards, although the Best Picture award went to A Colony (Une colonie). In television, the drama series Anne with an E and Cardinal tied for the most wins, with seven awards each.
