Message

From Our President and CEO

The story starts the same for all of us; a ball, a pool, a puck, a pair of skates. For some, the play becomes sport, the sport becomes a personal best, and a personal best becomes competition at the highest level. The success in sport and in life opens new and different doors; supporting a charitable cause, amplifying a community project and the realization that it’s not just you and a podium anymore. These are individuals who have achieved greatness and didn’t stop there. They are compelled to go beyond their success and give back to their communities as builders, mentors, ambassadors, and role models. This is the Class of 2022.

This evening is the culmination of another incredible chapter in their stories. Receiving our nation's highest sporting honour, the Order of Sport Award, and joining over 700 of Canada's most prestigious sporting icons as they are inducted into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame.

As Canada’s only national museum of sport our role is to amplify these stories through our four pillars; curation, education, recognition, and thought leadership, providing exciting and dynamic opportunities for all Canadians to connect with the stories and lived experiences of this incredible Class.
