The 1st Canadian Screen Awards were held on March 3, 2013, to honour achievements in Canadian film and television production in 2012.[1] This was the first-ever Canadian Screen Awards ceremony, following the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television's decision, announced in 2012, to merge its formerly separate Genie Awards (for film) and Gemini Awards (for television) into a single ceremony.[2] In addition, the Canadian Screen Awards include awards for achievements in digital media.[2]

Nominations were announced on January 15, 2013.[1] The awards ceremony was hosted by Martin Short.[1]


The program was watched by 756,000 Canadian viewers,[3] approximately double the typical ratings for Genie or Gemini ceremonies in recent years.[3]
