Given the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame will welcome our five new members at a gala dinner and induction ceremony hosted in July 2021.  An Evening Under the Stars, this event will be held outdoors at the prestigious Aga Khan Museum in Toronto. The event is being planned in full compliance with Ontario’s Phase 3 guidelines, where 100 people are permitted to meet outdoors in a business venue, with health protocols monitored and safe distancing implemented. We will monitor all restrictions and continue to adapt accordingly. The gala dinner and induction ceremony will be by-invitation-only with no public sale of tickets. While we will miss celebrating with many of you next year, health and safety must come first.  We look forward to resuming our usual annual dinner gathering in the future.
