The Juno Award for "Reggae Recording of the Year" has been awarded since 1985, as recognition each year for the best reggae album or single in Canada.[1]

The award was not presented in 1992 or 1993, during which time reggae albums were subsumed into the new World Beat Recording category, but a separate reggae category was reinstituted in 1994 and has been presented continuously since then.
