The Juno Fan Choice Award is an annual Juno Award presented since 2003 by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) to the favourite artist or group of the year as voted by Canadian music fans. The nominees in the category are determined by sales, and the winner is chosen from among these nominees by an online vote open to the general public. From 2003 to 2011, the list of nominees was limited to five artists or groups, but it was expanded to ten in 2012.
The winningest artists in the category are Justin Bieber, Michael Bublé, and Nickleback, who have each won the Fan Choice Award two times. Nickelback has also received the most nominations, with seven total.
