CanadA's Marketing Hall of Legends

Build Leaders, Celebrate Legends.

About Canada's Marketing Hall of Legends

Originally launched in 2004, Canada’s Marketing Hall of Legends honours Canadians who have dedicated their professional lives to pursuing excellence in marketing, and has become one of the country’s most respected industry awards.

Canada’s marketing landscape is composed of dynamic, successful, and confident leaders. To celebrate Canada’s marketing talent, the AMAs Toronto Branch created Canada’s Marketing Hall of Legends to honour Canadians who have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of excellence in the field of marketing. It is meant to honour a body of work and a lifetime of achievements. 

The award, created to spotlight the stories, people and brands behind Canada’s greatest marketing successes, recognizes a noteworthy body of work and a lifetime of achievements. Nominations for induction are held annually. An independent selection committee of top marketing professionals evaluates each year’s list of nominees.

Through recognizing and celebrating the industry’s most influential leaders, the CMHOL helps the marketing community share knowledge, promote business excellence within the profession, and inspire future marketing legends.
