The Waterloo Region Hall of Fame honours individuals and groups – now numbering more that 400 – for their significant contributions to the community. Hall of Fame exhibits will open in the new Waterloo Region Museum in late 2011.
The Waterloo Region Hall of Fame grew out of a proposal in 1965 to establish a local Sports Hall of Fame in Kitchener. Prior to its opening in 1972, the Hall of Fame concept was expanded to include pioneers and community builders. The Hall of Fame is overseen by a Board of Governors with representation from across Waterloo Region.
Where: Waterloo Region Museum, 10 Huron Street, Kitchener
