Welcome to the Canadian Petroleum Hall of Fame


Canada’s petroleum sector boasts a rich and colourful history – a history best told and understood through the words, deeds and accomplishments of successive generations of men and women who can be appropriately characterized as our industry’s founders and builders. The Canadian Petroleum Hall of Fame was created in 1997 to establish an annual process by which significant contributions to the industry can be recognized, honoured and celebrated.


Each year, the search for nominations begins anew, and with the selection of that year’s inductees, new dimensions of the historical record are captured.
