Canadian Masters’ Hall of Fame
The prestigious Canadian Masters’ Hall of Fame was inaugurated in 2006 to celebrate two decades of Masters racing in Canada–a national recreational program that took alpine skiers by storm in the mid-eighties. This recognition initiative is a fitting tribute to individuals who made outstanding contributions to the growth and development of Masters’ racing in Canada. Award presentations are made in the spring at the Canadian Masters’ Championships.

- To be eligible for consideration, a candidate must be:
- A Master’s competitor for at least 20 years, at both the National and International levels, achieving reasonable performance levels.
- A Canadian citizen
The honor is not necessarily determined annually and can be awarded only once in a recipient’s lifetime.
Nominations should be made in writing to the Selection Committee and contain a profile outlining the reasons for nomination. The Selection Committee will determine whether an interview will be given, whether criteria have been met and subsequently whether the award will be presented that year.
Selection Committee Member Criteria
The Selection Committee shall be appointed by the Masters’ National Committee and include two people from the West and two people from the East (preferably one from Ontario and one from Québec). Appointments are encouraged to be of a minimum of two years duration for continuity and should be of those who have been racing long enough to be familiar with the cast of characters on the circuit. The timing of future appointments to the committee are encouraged to be staggered, again for reasons of continuity. When a member wishes to step down they are asked to find a replacement.
