Induction into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame is the highest sporting honour in Canada. Each year, a class of the country’s most influential and inspiring athletes and sport builders are inducted. As a part of the induction process, Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame has interviewed 154 Honoured Members over the last eight years. Honoured Member video shotlists available include Nancy Greene Raine, Bobby Hull, Daniel Igali, Lennox Lewis, Chantal Petitclerc, Joe Sakic and Mark Tewksbury. The content focuses on Honoured Members telling their own stories, the life lessons they have learned and the core values that defined their journey. Youth, families, businesses and communities can benefit from these stories.
As a part of Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame’s mission to share the stories of our Honoured Members, we strive to inspire Canadians in sport and life. The shotlists from this amazing video collection are being made available to media, educators, museums and corporations via this link: Canada's Sports Hall of Fame Online Collection
