Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame is a completely accessible facility located at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, Alberta and is a wonderful opportunity to see Canada’s largest collection of Canadian sport related artefacts. The experience includes dozens of interactive exhibits for all ability/mobility levels and moving stories of Canada’s greatest sporting heroes presented in audio/visual formats friendly for the hearing impaired. The stories of our Honoured Members touch on the core values that define our country and demonstrate how they each helped shape Canada into what it is today. 

Programming options at Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame include a rare opportunity to handle some of Canada’s never-seen-before historical artefacts, to learn about Canadian sport history from our experienced team, and to share your own great sport stories.
