Since 2016, the JUNO Awards and Slaight Music have partnered together to support emerging artists. Every year, a Super Jury made up of JUNO alumni selects three acts to receive support from Canada’s premier artist development program in order to help propel their careers to the next level and get “JUNO-ready.”
