    Visit: Canada's Sports Hall of Fame, 169 Canada Olympic Rd SW Canada Olympic Park, Calgary, Alberta T3B 6B7 Canada

    Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame is an international award winning 40,000 square foot building with state-of-the-art technology which helps to share the stories of its Honoured Members. Inside the new building, you'll be able to visit 12 galleries representing 66 sports and experience dozens of interactive visitor experiences. Watch an 11-minute feature film highlighting great sport moments in the 120-seat Riddell Family Theatre and learn about Canada’s sporting traditions and artifact, video, and photo collections.

    School programs are offered for local schools as well as a Virtual Distance Learning Program for students and communities across the country to ensure all citizens can experience this national treasure.

    The story of a national hall of fame devoted entirely to Canada’s sporting history started with the efforts of one man, Harry Price. In 1947, as chairman of the Sports Committee for the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), he traveled across the country trying to enlist support to build a museum dedicated to Canadian athletes past and present; a place to celebrate the many achievements by Canadian athletes in the world of sports.

    Eight years later it was announced that the Stanley Barracks at the CNE grounds in Toronto would be home for Canada's Sports Hall of Fame. The opening ceremonies took place on August 24, 1955 and featured the symbolic lighting of a flame that became the central image for Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame’s logo.

    When the Hockey Hall of Fame came on the scene in 1957, the two Halls joined forces and Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame relocated to the Administration Building/Press Building on CNE grounds. In 2008, Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame Board of Governors launched a national bid process to rejuvenate and grow Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame – to find a new home. The new Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame building opened July 1, 2011 – offering 40,000 square feet of space dedicated to preserving and celebrating Canada’s impressive and inspiring sport history.
