Making a Nomination

Nominations for inductees to the Hall of Fame may be submitted by any one at any time. Nominations may be submitted by individuals or on behalf of a society or any other organization.

George Klein, 1904-1992

Margaret Newton, 1887-1971

The Selection Committee normally considers the nominations annually. Not all individuals who meet the criteria will be selected, but they may be reconsidered during subsequent deliberations of the Selection Committee.

School classes may submit up to three nominations per class.

Frère Marie-Victorin, 1885-1944

John Polanyi, 1929-

To submit a nomination, follow these steps:

  1. Check that the person you wish to nominate is not already a member of the Hall of Fame.

  2. Ensure that the person meets the nomination criteria. Do some research. For instance, check the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame or the Great Canadian Scientists web pages.

  3. Prepare supporting arguments outlining why you think the person should be inducted. This should address each of the nomination criteria but should not exceed 500 words. Please include the sources or references you have consulted. Copies of documentary evidence supporting your nomination may also be submitted.

  4. Forward your nomination via the link below or mail to:
