In 1961, the Loyola Alumni Association and the administration of Loyola College agreed to the creation of the Loyola Medal "as a permanent tribute to the outstanding leadership and achievement on the Canadian scene". The first medal was awarded in 1963 to General Georges P. Vanier, former governor general of Canada and Loyola alumnus.

After being awarded to Maureen Forrester in 1979, the award was not given out again until 1991.

In 1989, the Loyola Medal was re-established as an award by Concordia Universitymarker and given every two years to an outstanding individual who meets the specified criteria:

  1. Recipients shall be outstanding citizens as evidenced by their character and life philosophy and who have made a significant contribution to the Canadian community.
  2. They shall embody the ideals and spirit which characterized Loyola College.

  3. Recipients will be individuals whose receipt of the award will bring prestige to both the Concordia and Loyola names.
  4. The list of past winners includes Cardinal Paul-Émile Léger, Thérèse Casgrain, Jean Béliveau, and Oscar Peterson.
