CORRECTED* Reimagining Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame
This past year was challenging, yet illuminating. While it presented many obstacles, impactful opportunities have emerged to reimagine how Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame can continue to build Canada through the transformative power of sport.
At this time, our museum will remain closed to the public; however, Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame remains committed to our mission – educating all Canadians on the value, history, and culture of sport in this country – and we are proud to expand the ways in which we are doing so.

This national education initiative designed for K-12 students aims to educate and inspire Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth across Canada by bringing awareness to the truths and experiences of these incredible Indigenous heroes.
