Due to unexpected demand, the MCC will be expanding to a full three days in 2012. The MCC will also be changing facilities in 2012. It will no longer be held at Place Bonaventure but will be moving into the newer, convention facilities at the Palais des Congrès in Montreal, QC.
This marks the second time that the Joe Shuster Awards will be presented outside of Toronto. Earlier this year the 7th annual Shuster Awards were presented at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo. Plans are for the JSAs to be presented in conjunction with a different comic book convention in Canada each year.
