Our Mission

Educating all Canadians on the value, history, and culture of sport in Canada.

Our Story

Through the inspiring stories and memorabilia of prominent sport champions, Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame’s Beyond the Win Education Programs share the critical choices that Athletes and Builders make, and the adversity they face, on their journeys to becoming a Hall of Famer. Most importantly, these programs inspire youth to become their own great-to-good stories by learning how their sport heroes go “beyond the win” to help build Canada through the transformative power of sport.


   Canada's Sports Hall of Fame began running educational programs in Toronto, Ontario.


  The museum moved to Calgary, Alberta and continued to facilitate in-person education programs onsite.


  Driven by a passion to share Hall of Famer stories, the in-school Hall of Famers on Tour program was launched in May 2019.


  In order to reach across Canada, we embraced virtual programming and developed a lineup of curriculum-aligned asynchronous and synchronous education programs and resources.


  As we add more stories to our repertoire, Beyond the Win Education Programs continue to reach thousands of students across Canada virtually and in-person.


  We're excited to announce that in 2023, Beyond the Win Education Programs have connected with 250,000 youth nationwide, fostering engagement both in person and virtually across every Province and Territory.
