An individual or group may submit nominations; however, self-nomination is not eligible. Current staff and board members of both the CMC and CLC are not eligible for the award.
Nominators must create a separate entry for each nominee if they are nominating more than one candidate.
The Friends of Canadian Music Award is committed to promoting diversity and inclusivity. Diversity in all its forms (race, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, language, physical ability, geographical location, and age) will guide the jury’s decision, as well as a consideration of past winners to help promote equitable decisions in the long-term. Nominations of women and those from traditionally underrepresented populations are especially welcome.
