Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame lives at the intersection of sport and culture, encouraging all Canadians to embrace Canada’s competitive spirit as their own. We champion our Hall of Famer’s as they commit their purpose, passion and values to their communities – a ripple effect that unites us beyond sport.
The Inspire Canada Museum Gala raises funds for our Education initiatives. We deliver engaging programs for students to experience Canada's rich sporting history in our galleries and with our Virtual Visits. The museum includes dozens of hands-on interactive activities (from wheelchair racing to sports broadcasting), a theatre screening our inspiring “Canada’s Greatest Sport Moments” and sharing other films and speakers, and a green screen studio to create live interactions with schools across Canada.
Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame is a Not-for-Profit Organization and accredited Museum. A portion of each ticket or sponsorship will go toward building Canada through sport by providing sport educational and cultural experiences.

ABOUT OUR MUSICAL GUEST TREVOR PANZCEK
Trevor Panczak (pan*zak) is an award winning country music entertainer who grew up on a farm south of Magrath, Alberta. He is a talented songwriter & vocalist but what brings it all together under his cowboy hat and out of his 6 foot 6 inch frame, is his natural ability to connect with an audience. His laid back humour, smooth voice and charming stage presence leaves a lasting impression.
Trevor strives to bring people together through his music, personality and community spirit. True to his farm roots, Trevor believes he is here to not just entertain, but to give back. Over the past 4 years he has helped raise over $400,000 for numerous charities such as Big Hearted Cowboys, Lethbridge Therapeutic Riding Association, Rotary and S.T.A.R.S. Air Ambulance. Trevor Panczak truly is the real deal. His talent and core values are synonymous with the spirit of country music and his professionalism and charisma are why his star continues to shine.
