The Juno Awards of 1975, representing Canadian music industry achievements of the previous year, were awarded on 24 March 1975 in Toronto at a ceremony in the Canadian National Exhibition. Paul Anka was host for the ceremonies, which were broadcast for the first time. Canadians were able to see the event on CBC Television from 10pm Eastern Time.

Stompin' Tom Connors, Susan Jacks, Terry Jacks, Andy Kim, Anne Murray, and The Stampeders would appear at the ceremonies.

With the move to television, control over the Junos had shifted from Walt Grealis' RPM Magazine to the new Canadian Music Awards Association. Grealis was now in an advisory role for the Junos, and according to The Globe and Mail his founding role was not acknowledged during the Junos broadcast.
