With a few exceptions, the Awards have been given out every year since its inauguration. It remains the longest standing and one of the most prestigious awards for the Aboriginal athletes in the country.

As a program of the Aboriginal Sport Circle, the Tom Longboat Awards provide a forum for acknowledging the growth and strength of the Aboriginal sport movement in Canada and its tremendous impact on the sport development from community level participation to elite level competition. The Awards include a male and female category.

(1) All expenses paid round trip to Toronto with a family member to accept the national award.
(2) A custom-made Tom Longboat Award.
(3) A $1500 bursary to support personal athlete development.
