Canadian Rowing Hall of Fame

The Canadian Rowing Hall of Fame recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of Canadian rowers at the highest levels of the sport, and those whose efforts have contributed directly to those results. These individual stories serve as inspirations to Canadians and others, and will help to promote the sport and its amazing history.

The Canadian Rowing Hall of Fame also recognizes those who have brought honour to the sport and to Canada, and those whose substantial and sustained efforts have contributed to the growth and development of the sport in Canada and abroad.

The Canadian Rowing Hall of Fame will ensure that these outstanding contributions will be remembered for generations to come.

Hall of Fame Committee


The CRHF structure, policies and procedures are established under the authority of Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA) to honour the great achievements by Canadians in rowing and those whose dedicated efforts have greatly benefited the sport in Canada and abroad.

The RCA Board of Directors has the power to amend these provisions and their interpretation of these provisions shall be final.


To ensure the longevity of the CRHF, Rowing Canada Aviron has established a committee, which will be charged with the advancement of the Hall over the ensuing years.  The CRHF Committee will build a transparent, merit-based and prestigious Hall in a manner that fully engages the rowing community and builds a base of donors and supporters that will help to sustain the Canadian Rowing Hall of Fame in perpetuity.


The committee appointed by RCA will evaluate nominees on the basis of the significance and scope of their achievements, their dedication to their sport, the consistency of their performance, and personal qualities that reflect the RCA values on and off the water.

In an effort to maintain transparency and equality, the selection committee will be comprised of the following members:

  • Chair  [voting member]
  • Vice-Chair  [voting member]
  • Treasurer [voting-member]
  • Athlete representative [voting member]
  • Club representative [voting member]
  • Non RCA high-performance sport representative [voting member]
  • Media representative [voting-member]
  • Secretary [non-voting member]
  • Researcher [non-voting member]
