"Juno Winners and Nominees"

The 32nd Juno Awards were last Sunday April 6, 2003. Currently there are over a hundred categories. These awards began in 1970,  when organizers Stan Klees and Walt Grealis, who published RPM, a weekly music trade publication, held the Gold Leaf Awards in the St. Lawrence Hall in Toronto. (from

A year later, the event changed its name to the Juno Awards, at the suggestion of reader Hal Philips, who asked that the magazine honour Pierre Juneau, the then head of the CRTC, which had implemented the Canadian Content Regulations in 1971. When it was discovered that Juno had been the Chief Goddess of the Roman Pantheon, the spelling was changed and the awards permanently named.

The Junos remained exclusively an industry event for the next few years but, in 1975, they assumed a much higher profile when they were telecast for the first time and the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences / L'academie canadienne des arts et des sciences de l'enregistrement(CARAS) was established to handle the event, working with all segments of the music industry in Canada.
