The 2022 JUNO Awards accepted a total of 235 nominations across 46 categories. Of these, 105 (44 percent) were first-time nominees, and within this total group, first-time JUNO Award winners accounted for a striking 64 percent. Sixty-five per cent of these first-time award winners were artists who identify as a woman, or artist groups with woman-identifying representation.

“Canada is home to an incredible breadth of musical talent, across so many genres,” said Allan Reid, President and CEO, CARAS/The JUNO Awards. “With such an accessible submissions process, our goal is to help artists – no matter where they’re at in their career – dream big, champion their craft, and put their name forward for these opportunities.”
