Justin Bieber, Drake and the Weeknd are nominated for the best album of the year award, along with Shawn Mendes and Jean Leloup.

Bieber, Drake, Mendes and the Weeknd were also nominated for artist of the year, along with City and Colour.

Last year was a record-breaker for Canadian performers as a handful of homegrown musicians traded spots in the upper echelons of the Billboard Hot 100.

Before Adele came calling with "Hello," the Weeknd, Bieber and Drake monopolized the top few spots on the Billboard singles chart, where Canadians rarely hit No. 1.

Breakout pop singers Alessia Cara of Brampton, Ont., and Mendes of Pickering, Ont., also cracked the Top 10.

Cara, Bryan Adams and Dean Brody will be among the performers at the Juno Awards, which will air live from Calgary on CTV on April 3.
