The extended rollout for For All The Dogs might've dominated the music conversation at times in 2023, but there were plenty of great albums dropped by Canadian artists throughout the year worthy of your time. For whatever reason, artists from here respect the album format as an artistic medium in a way that sometimes runs counter to the quick and dirty singles world we're living in, and it's a good thing for music fans. Some Canadian artists took major steps forward, while others continued to deliver the level of quality fans expect.
