Call for Nominations for the 2022 and 2023 Canada Games Hall of Honour

Ottawa, Ontario - The Canada Games Council (CGC) invites Canadians to celebrate sporting excellence and outstanding achievement on and off the field of play by nominating acclaimed alumni for the 2022 and 2023 Canada Games Hall of Honour.

The Hall of Honour recognizes exceptional Canada Games alumni who have sparked greatness by distinguishing themselves during the Games and beyond, while contributing to the growth of the Canada Games Movement.

Nominees are eligible for induction in one of three categories:

Athletes:

The athlete category recognizes past Canada Games athletes who have achieved significant success in national and/or international competition. Nominees must also have demonstrated support for the Canada Games through promotional events, community engagement or other meaningful activities. Nominees must be inactive.

Builders:

The builder category recognizes past coaches, managers, officials, administrators, volunteers, sponsors or members of the media who have made outstanding efforts and had an immeasurable impact for more than 10 years within the Canada Games Movement. Nominees may be active or inactive.

Distinguished Alumni:

The distinguished alumni category recognizes any individual who has participated in a previous Canada Games (as an athlete or in another capacity) and has since gone on to meaningful accomplishments in a field other than sport. Nominees exemplify the highest levels of ethical leadership in their profession and their community.

To nominate an athlete, builder or distinguished alumni for the 2022 and 2023 Hall of Honour, please complete the nomination form no later than January 31, 2022.

The Hall of Honour class of 2022 will be formally inducted during the 2022 Canada Summer Games in Niagara next August, while the 2023 class will officially enter the Hall during the Canada Winter Games in Prince Edward Island in February of 2023.

Established in 2007, the Canada Games Hall of Honour counts some of the finest athletes in Canadian sport among its ranks, including Cassie Campbell (2009), Catriona Le May Doan (2011), Nicolas Gill (2015), Carla MacLeod (2017), and most recently Jennifer Heil, Cindy Klassen and Bruny Surin (2019).

Le Conseil des Jeux du Canada (CJC) est l’organisme privé sans but lucratif qui régit le mouvement des Jeux du Canada. Tenus tous les deux ans, en alternance entre l’été et l’hiver, les Jeux du Canada sont le plus haut niveau de compétition au pays pour les athlètes de la relève. Ils ont eu lieu au moins une fois dans chaque province depuis leur création à Québec à l’occasion du centenaire du Canada en 1967. Les Jeux sont fiers de leur contribution au système de développement sportif ainsi que de leurs legs durables en installations sportives, fierté collective et unité nationale. L’organisation des Jeux du Canada est rendue possible grâce au dévouement des sociétés hôtesse ainsi qu’à la contribution et au soutien du gouvernement du Canada, des gouvernements provinciaux et territoriaux et des municipalités hôtes.

Le bureau du CJC est situé à Ottawa, sur les terres ancestrales de la nation algonquine Anishinabeg.
