Ottawa's bid for the awards became known in March 2011 when it was revealed the province of Ontario allocated $100,000 in funding towards the city's 2012 Juno Awards bid. The bid was jointly supported by the city, the province and the National Capital Commission. Ottawa hosted the awards on one other occasion, in 2003.
On 1 April, prior to the main ceremony, Dan Mangan hosted a songwriters' event at Centrepointe Theatre featuring Kiran Ahluwalia, Terri Clark, David Francey, Max Kerman of Arkells, Kardinall Offishall and Lindi Ortega.
