The Canadian Sport Awards honour the outstanding achievements of Canada’s best amateur athletes and leaders, thus showcasing the heroes that live within sport. The CSA brings together members of the sport community to honour the spirit, drive, and commitment of Canada’s international level athletes, coaches, corporations, volunteers, sport leaders, media, and inspired youth. The CSA are a tribute to the hard work, dedication, and victories of our country's finest.
Since its inception, the awards recognize and celebrate Canada's finest sport heroes. Once managed by the Canadian Sport Council, the Canadian Sport Awards are now driven by the True Sport Foundation (formerly known as the Spirit of Sport Foundation), the charitable organization committed to ensuring that sport makes a positive contribution to Canadian society, our athletes, and the physical and moral development of Canada's youth. The Canadian Sport Awards also boasts a strong relationship with its modern day founding partners:
A large number of sport enthusiasts, including some of Canada's top amateur athletes, sport icons, sport leaders, and Canadian celebrities have attended the event over the past years.
Canadian corporations have the opportunity to partner with a first-class event that promotes and recognizes the pursuit of excellence through sport. The values of sport are closely mirrored to the goals of corporate Canada. The awards offer meaningful messaging and programming opportunities to interested corporations.

The True Sport Foundation, in conjunction with KPMG auditors, has established detailed nomination guidelines and a well-defined nomination process to govern the Canadian Sport Awards. Individuals must be nominated for an award and must meet the appropriate criteria.
Nominations are submitted to the True Sport Foundation and checked for eligibility and completeness. Accepted nominations are forwarded to the Selection Advisory Committee to review each nomination, and to shortlist where available three to five nominees.
The three to five nominees are then forwarded to the jury to vote. The jurors vote on the true sport aspects of the athlete. Jurors submit their ballots to an independent scrutineer to tabulate the results. The scrutineer publicly announces the top three finalists. The official winners are announced during the Canadian Sport Awards.
The True Sport Foundation Board of Directors and the Canadian Sport Awards’ Selection Advisory Committee prepare a list of eligible candidates. The committee appoints the designated number of individuals to form the current year's selection jury. It is the discretion of the True Sport Foundation to determine the number of juries each year given the scope of the nominations. Jury members sit for a two-year term and are required to sign a confidentiality and conflict of interest agreement.
