How to Nominate
Each year Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame solicits from the general public nominations of individuals and Belt of Orion candidates for induction into the Hall of Fame.
As of the 2010 Induction Year, consideration will be given to nominations of groups of individuals, including family members, whose collective accomplishments are of major significance. Please consult the Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame office for further details.
All nominations received are reviewed by a Nominations Review Committee (NRC), which prepares a list of the top nominations. The NRC's recommendations are then presented to the Board of Directors at their fall meeting, at which time the Inductees for the following year are chosen.
The Nominations Review Committee looks for demonstrated outstanding abilities in overcoming challenge, management ability, special talents, peer recognition, responsibility and accomplishments which contribute a lasting benefit to Canada.
