The new awards show, founded by brothers Shamier Anderson and Stephan James through their organization The Black Academy, is intended to honour Black Canadian talent, and will give out its first round of awards this weekend.

Track sprinter De Grasse is a six-time Olympic medallist, and took home three medals — a bronze, silver and gold — at the games in 2022.
