Keeping health and safety as our top priority, The Canadian Mining Hall of Fame will welcome our five new members at a gala dinner and induction ceremony on August 26, 2021. Presenting an Evening Under the Stars, this event will be held outdoors at the prestigious Aga Khan Museum in Toronto. Ensuring our event takes place in Step 3 of Ontario’s reopening, our planning is in full compliance with public health capacity restrictions and safe distancing guidelines.

With restrictions on attendance, the dinner is by invitation only with no public sale of tickets. We will be filming and recording the induction proceedings to create an edited version to include the awards presentations, videos and acceptance speeches. Post-event, this will be uploaded onto the CMHF YouTube channel for those but who would like to watch it at their convenience.

While we will miss celebrating with many of you in person, health and safety comes first. We look forward to resuming our usual annual dinner gathering in the future.
