The Juno Awards of 1985, representing Canadian music industry achievements of the previous year, were awarded on 4 November 1985 in Toronto. The ceremony was hosted by Andrea Martin and Martin Short at the Harbour Castle Hilton Hotel.

New categories for R&B/Soul and Reggae/Calypso were introduced this year. Nominations in secondary categories (children's, video, producer, recording engineer, classical and jazz) were announced 27 September 1985.

The ceremonies were broadcast nationally on CBC Television from 7pm Eastern Time. These included performances by Liberty Silver, Kim Mitchell and a duet of Tina Turner and Bryan Adams. Prime Minister Brian Mulroney was also in attendance.

Earlier in 1985, most major Canadian music artists joined each other to create the benefit single "Tears Are Not Enough". It was not represented among the year's Juno nominations although it demonstrated strength in the Canadian music industry.
