For over 40 years, the community has entrusted the BC Sports Hall of Fame with the responsibility to collect, preserve, study, and interpret materials that relate to British Columbia's sport history.

The BC Sports Hall of Fame re-opened in January 2012 after having been closed to the public for a 20 month period while the new roof was being installed on BC Place Stadium. The Hall has opened a spectacular new Vancouver 2010 Gallery boasting the world's largest and broadest collection of 2010 Olympic and Paralympic artifacts, as well as a new Hall of Champions, the Hall's signature gallery.

History[edit]

The BC Sports Hall of Fame was founded in 1966 by Eric Whitehead and other groups of sports minded individuals in British Columbia. Internationally recognized as the 'go to' organization for BC sport history, researchers, writers, media members and sport historians have gained access to and an appreciation of BC's rich sporting heritage through the organization's extensive artifact and archival collection.

In August 1966, the BC Sports Hall of Fame officially opened in the BC Pavilion on the Pacific National Exhibition grounds, until it moved in 1993 to BC Place Stadium.

Induction and Inductees[edit]

Since 1966, the BC Sports Hall of Fame has inducted 325 individuals and 55 teams. Once inducted, these individuals become known as Honoured Members and the teams are known as Honoured Teams of the BC Sports Hall of Fame. The five major induction categories, each with their own set of criteria, comprise: Athlete, Builder, Pioneer, Media and Team.

The Induction Process[edit]

The annual nomination deadline is October 1. Any individual or association may submit a nomination with the following exceptions:

  • A current Member of the BC Sports Hall of Fame Selection Committee may not submit a nomination.
  • A member of the BC Sports Hall of Fame Board of Trustees may submit a nomination but if the Trustee submits a nomination, that Trustee may not vote on that nomination if and when it is brought to the Board of Trustees for approval.
