Rogers Media is calling Canadians of all ages with unique skills and outstanding talents! The Citytv original series, Canada’s Got Talent, is launching a nationwide search to find Canada’s most talented performers. This September, the all-new Canadian version of the international hit Got Talent format will make stops for auditions in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Vancouver, Halifax, Montreal and Toronto. Full details, rules and regulations, and sign-up forms are available at Canada’s Got Talent premieres on Citytv in Spring 2012.

“We are looking for a wide range of entertaining Canadians from every region, age and cultural experience,” commented Ed Robinson, Executive Producer, Rogers Broadcasting Ltd. “We welcome singers, dancers, jugglers, cyclists, fire breathers, illusionists, acrobats, ventriloquists, musicians, and anyone who has a talent they want to share.“

The nationwide search celebrates the diverse and eclectic home-grown talent from across the country. With no age limitations and every kind of talent welcome – anything goes. Much more than just a song and dance competition, Canada’s Got Talent showcases exceptional acts from magicians to trapeze artists, clowns to contortionists, animal entertainers to marching bands, plate spinners and comedians… and everything in between. Top performers compete to impress an expert panel of judges in front of a live studio audience in the hopes of moving forward to the next round
