ABOUT THE ORDER OF SPORT

Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame created the Order of Sport award to modernize recognition and reflect the growing cultural significance of sport to Canadians; one that connects Canada’s greatest sports champions to the greater good. The Order of Sport provides the stature and optics that refresh credentials and emboldens our champions to step into the spotlight with new purpose. With the Order of Sport, we are providing a platform and extending the runway for champions that connect sport + spirit. For more information about the Order of Sport, click here.

ABOUT CANADA’S SPORTS HALL OF FAME

Located in Calgary, Alberta at WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park, Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame is a registered charitable organization and has been a vital cultural institution in Canada for the past 65 years. As one of North America’s oldest sports museums, the organization’s focus is on recognition, education, curation, and thought leadership. These four pillars help to support and celebrate Canada’s sport heroes for the value and impact they return to their communities. Over 673 people have been inducted into the Hall of Fame since its establishment in 1955, and as of 2019, the new Order of Sport is awarded as part of induction to Canada’s top athletes and builders for their ongoing role in building Canada through sport.
