You oughta know that Alanis Morissette is getting inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

The now 40-year-old married mom, who originally hails from Ottawa, will get the honour during the March 15 televised Juno Awards (CTV) being held at FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton.

Morissette’s career spans three decades, punctuated by her seminal 1995 album Jagged Little Pill, and its monster hit You Oughta Know, and includes 13 Juno awards, seven Grammy awards and two Golden Globe award nominations.

“It is an honour to be honoured by my home country that I adore so much,” said the singer in a statement.

Morissette recorded her first song at age 10 and won her first Juno at age 17.

And while she started out as a dance-pop artist with her first self-titled album, 1991’s Alanis, that spawned the hit Too Hot, she reinvented herself when she moved to L.A. and worked with songwriter-producer Glen Ballard on the confessional rock songs that made up Jagged.

The album went on to sell 30 million copies and produced other big hits including Hand in My Pocket, Ironic, You Learn, and Head Over Feet and won Morissette five Juno Awards in 1996 in Hamilton including album, single and songwriter of the year.

Her most recent album was 2012’s Havoc and Bright Lights.

Previous Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductees include Anne Murray, Joni Mitchell, k.d. lang, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Rush and Shania Twain.
