Rock legend Neil Young will be receiving the 2011 Allan Waters Humanitarian Award at this years JUNO Awards for his many decades of activism.

The CEO of the JUNO Awards had this to say about the honor:

”We are thrilled to salute Neil Young’s committed and compassionate legacy. As a driving force behind one of music’s most successful fundraising events, Farm Aid, and a key participant in Live 8 right here at home, plus many other deserving causes and programs, his tenacity and spirit is highly regarded among his peers and serves as an inspiration to all of us.”

Young’s career as an activist began in the 60’s as he worked to help small farmers, and he even created the annual fundraising concert Farm Aid to raise money for the cause. In 1987 Young, who has two children with cerebral palsy, started The Bridge School with his wife, which aims to educate children with severe speech and physical impairments.

This won’t be Young’s first trip to the Canadian awards ceremony. He has five previous JUNO Awards already, although those were all for his music.

Past Allan Waters Humanitarian Award recipients include Bryan Adams and Sarah McLachlan.
