Returning as in-person events, the Canadian Game Awards and Canadian Indie Game Awards are making their way back to Toronto for the fourth year in a row.

The Canadian Game Awards are coming back to Toronto for another go-around, with a 90-minute in-person presentation highlighting the achievements of developers, designers, publishers, and influencers who have “contributed to the growth of the Canadian gaming industry.” The showcase will also be live-stream on Twitch for those who can’t make the live event, but either way, it should offer a ton of excitement.
