  • Deceased athletes, coaches and builders are eligible for consideration for the “In Memoriam” category.


  • Nominations will be sought on an annual basis

  • A Club, Branch or individual may submit nominations in each of the athlete/ team, coach, and builder categories.

  • Nominees will be considered for induction in the year nominated, and, if requested by the nominator, for up to two successive years thereafter.

  • In the event that a nominee is not selected for induction within the three‐year period, the nomination will be declared inactive and may only be resubmitted after a period of four years has elapsed.

  • A maximum of three pages of supporting documentation may accompany each nomination.


  • A Hall of Fame Selection Committee, appointed by Athletics Canada, will evaluate nominees on the basis of the significance and scope of their achievements, their dedication to their sport, the consistency of their performance, and personal qualities that reflect the values of Athletics Canada on and off the field.

  • A maximum of five Athlete nominees, three “In Memoriam” nominees, one Coach nominee and one Builder nominee will be selected annually for induction into the Hall of Fame.

    2. None of the nominations meet the general guidelines

    3. Special circumstances exist whereby a particular person should be given consideration, even if not nominated.
