Project: BC Sports History Timeline

The history of BC is seldom shared from a sports perspective. The role of the BC Sports Hall of Fame is to ensure that the sporting highlights of the province are not only remembered, but celebrated. Excellence in sport can be an inspiration as well all a source of community pride.
The BC Sports History Timeline project illustrates specific moments in our province’s history that foster pride, captured through a graphic mural, banners, artifact displays, and an interactive game. The Defining Moments in British Columbia Sport display profiles nearly 40 of the most significant and impactful sports moments by BC athletes, teams, or events, each of which has shaped the history and character of the province.
The moments that are featured in the display represent a variety or regions, eras, disciplines and provide the important focus on the role that sport has played in the development of BC. The Defining Moments in British Columbia Sport display provides a lasting tribute to the athletes, teams, and events that produced moments that shaped BC. Visitors gain a greater appreciation of the province’s sports heritage and a sense pride in those athletes and teams who have called BC home.
The BC Sports Hall of Fame is proud to be the caretakers of these moments and look forward to sharing them with visitors for the inspiration of all citizens of the province. This project support’s the Hall’s mission to of honouring the past and inspiring the future. All of the Defining Moments are inspirational and showcase excellence through hard work and commitment to a goal.
