The Juno Awards of 2005 were held April 3 at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba and were hosted by comedian Brent Butt. Avril Lavigne and k-os won three awards each, while Billy Talent and Feist won 2 apiece.

Nominations were announced 7 February 2005.

The Tragically Hip were this year's Canadian Music Hall of Fame recipient. Dan Aykroyd was originally scheduled to present this honour, but inexplicably cancelled several days before the awards ceremony. Sarah Harmer presented the Hall of Fame award in his place. Both Aykroyd and Harmer have ties to the Kingston, Ontario community in which The Tragically Hip are based.

Neil Young was scheduled to appear at these awards, based on a promise that he would attend if the ceremonies were held in Winnipeg. But the 1982 Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee cancelled his appearance shortly before the Juno ceremonies following surgery to correct a brain aneurysm.

Other Juno Weekend events included the JunoFest concert series held at venues around the city, the Songwriters’ Circle on Sunday afternoon, and the Juno Fan Fare autograph session with Keshia Chanté, Great Big Sea, Kardinal Offishall, The Tea Party, Thornley, and other Canadian bands and artists.

The following awards were presented during the primary ceremonies, with other categories awarded at a non-televised ceremony the previous night:

  • Group of the Year
  • New Artist of the Year
  • Juno Fan Choice Award
  • Songwriter of the Year
  • Album of the Year
  • Adult Alternative Album of the Year
  • Rap Recording of the Year
  • Single of the Year
