2014 Waterloo Region Hall of Fame Inductees.
The Waterloo Region Hall of Fame honours individuals and groups
- now numbering more than 400 - for their significant contributions
to the community. Nominations for new inductees are accepted
throughout the year. Note there is a July 1 deadline for
nominations to be considered for the following year.
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.
