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 MusiCan program.

CARAS began in 1975 as the Canadian Music Awards Association, adopting its present name after 1977 when it assumed control of the Juno Awards.

For the 2006-2007 year, the President of CARAS is Melanie Berry, and the Chair of CARAS is Stephen Stohn.
