(NEW YORK) -- Neil Young will be awarded the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award at the Canadian Juno awards on March 27, according to Billboard. The award recognizes Canadian artists whose actions and humanitarian work leave a positive impact on their country.
Young, who is a U.S. resident, still holds his Canadian citizenship and is active in social programs within the country. He's also a five-time Juno recipient. He was inducted into Canada's Music Hall of Fame in 1982 and was made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2010.
The Junos are Canada's of the Grammy Awards.
