The Juno Awards of 1992, representing Canadian music industry achievements of the previous year, were awarded on 29 March 1992 in Toronto at a ceremony in the O'Keefe Centre. Rick Moranis was the host for the ceremonies, which were broadcast on CBC Television from 9 pm Eastern.

Nominations were announced 12 February 1992. Bryan Adams was nominated in 7 categories to set a Juno record, while Tom Cochrane received nominations in 6.

Adams sparked controversy in the Canadian music industry several months earlier when he openly criticised Canadian content regulations when his album project, Waking Up the Neighbours, was disqualified as Canadian for radio airplay purposes. That album was created largely with the help of non-Canadian producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, therefore the songs fell below the legal Canadian content threshold. However, Adams qualified for the 1992 Juno nominations as an individual Canadian citizen. The 1992 Juno Awards thus became viewed as a showdown between Adams and Tom Cochrane, as the latter met Canadian content requirements.

When all the 1992 Juno Awards were presented, Tom Cochrane was the major winner with 4 Junos, compared to 3 for Adams. 1992's awards also featured an unprecedented three-way tie for winners in the Best Jazz Album category.
