Canadian Medical Hall of Fame

Induction Ceremony

Honouring the 2020 Inductees 

Unsurprisingly, our Board has made the very difficult decision to forgo an in-person Induction Ceremony in Vancouver, originally scheduled for April 2020 and then optimistically postponed until April 29, 2021. This is regrettable since celebrating our Inductees in person with friends, colleagues and supporters from near and far is such a memorable component of this particular honour.  However, we all understand why this had to happen, and that this is only one of many, many such gatherings lost in the wake of the pandemic. 

We are currently meeting with a production company to determine how best to show our Inductees their tribute videos, capture their comments and then, with the magic of editing, pull it together into a meaningful ‘show’. We will implement a communications plan and count down leading up to the release of the virtual production - still targeted for late April.  

We extend gratitude to those who have supported the Induction Ceremony. A link to the production will be made available at a later date. Through this new format, we hope to encourage people across the country to join us in learning more about the important contributions of these outstanding Canadians. 

We remain appreciative of the incredible response of health care workers amidst uncertainty, stress and threat to their own safety.  Here at the CMHF we have always understood the importance of recognizing our health heroes as a source of inspiration and pride; it is quite wonderful to see this heartfelt recognition shared across the world for all our frontline workers. 

Thank you again for your support.  We look forward to sharing the link to the virtual celebration with you in April.
