Associations of The Canadian Troubadour
Canadian Association of Recording Arts & Sciences
The primary reason to join CARAS is to receive JUNO Awards voting privileges. CARAS Academy Delegates are eligible to vote in 14 different categories. Voting is such an important part of the whole awards process! We feel that every person involved in the Canadian music industry should be participating to ensure a truly industry driven voting process. CARAS Academy Delegates also receive a discounted JUNO Awards submission rate.
Doug has been a CARAS Academy Delegate since 2019.
