Introducing Orienteering Canada's Hall of Fame

As part of Orienteering Canada’s 50th anniversary celebrations, we are thrilled to be launching the new Orienteering Canada Hall of Fame.

The Builder award is being introduced in 2017, Orienteering Canada’s 50th Anniversary to recognize and bring attention to those who have demonstrated a commitment to building the orienteering community over its first 50 years and into the future. Examples of this work might include long terms of service in national, provincial/territorial Association or club development, or working with committees or as an official or coach, acts of kindness and compassion, inspiring outreach activities, and any other acts or achievements that have strengthened and benefited our community.

Nominations are due Nov 1. Find all the details here:
