2015 was a coming out party for Andre De Grasse. After a false start in the 60-metres at the NCAA indoor championships, De Grasse came back to place second and set the 200-metre Canadian record in 20.26. At the 2015 NCAA outdoor championships in the 100-metres, De Grasse ran a wind-aided time of 9.75 (+2.7) to win. The 9.75 made him the seventh fastest man in the world and fastest Canadian in any conditions. Also at the 2015 NCAA Championships, De Grasse won the NCAA 200-metres title with a wind-aided 19.58 (+2.4). 

De Grasse's next major event was the 2015 Pan American Games held in his hometown of Toronto, where he won the gold medal in the 100-metres with a time of 10.05. Earlier in the semi's he ran a 9.97 on his way to the final. De Grasse also won the gold medal in the 200-metres at the 2015 Pan American Games with a Canadian record setting time of 19.88. De Grasse became the first Canadian in history to run both a sub-10, in the 100-metres, and sub-20 in the 200.

In August 2015, De Grasse tied for the bronze medal with American Trayvon Bromell in the 100 metres at the 2015 World Championships in Athletics in Beijing. He became the first Canadian to win a medal in track's marquee event since Bruny Surin raced to silver in 1999. De Grasse also ran second leg on the Canadian 4x100-metre relay team that won bronze in Beijing.
