Think of the Heritage Prize as our version of a hall of fame where we try to determine who would have been nominated or won the Prize in the years before it started in 2006. Like the Polaris Music Prize, winners and nominees for the Heritage Prize are albums of the artistic distinction, without regards to sales or affiliations.
Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s influential Keyboard Fantasies new age/electronic album from 1986 was chosen in the Re:Sound-supported Heritage Prize public voting category in November 2020. Buffy Sainte-Marie’s 1964 debut album It’s My Way! and Main Source’s groundbreaking 1991 hip-hop album Breaking Atoms both received Heritage designation owing to a tie vote by the Polaris Heritage Prize jury.
