Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences

The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) is the organization responsible for conducting the Juno Awards, Canada's primary national musical honours. CARAS also administers the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and supports music education in Canada through its MusiCounts production .

CARAS's mandate is to promote and celebrate Canadian music and artists.

The Juno Awards is Canada's premiere music awards show, which encompass a week-long celebration of Canadian music, culminating in The Juno Awards Broadcast where Canadian artists are recognized for excellence of achievement in recorded music.

MusiCounts, Canada's music education charity associated with CARAS, is dedicated to ensuring that young Canadians regardless of socio-economic circumstances and cultural background have the opportunity to experience the joy of music, explore their talent, build self-esteem, and above all dream big.

Since its establishment in 1997, MusiCounts will have:

  • Awarded nearly 5 million dollars to help keep music alive.
  • Impacted 262 Post-Secondary graduates and an estimated 400,000 students, their schools and communities.
  • In 2011-2012, MusiCounts honoured its 7th extraordinary music teacher through the MusiCounts Teacher of the Year Award.

CARAS has been inducting into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame (CMHF) since 1978 and has inducted 57 artists and industry professionals since that time.
