Our Mission is to honour Portuguese-Canadians for outstanding achievements that have served to inspire and instill pride in our community, and recognize contributions of Portuguese people in Canada.

Positioned in the heart of a vibrant community of people of all backgrounds, it is intended to honour those of a Portuguese background who have made an impact and significant contribution to the advancement of Portuguese Canadian Culture in Canada.

It was inaugurated on June 2nd, 2013 during celebrations to commemorate 60 years of Portuguese immigration to Canada.

Each year three new inductees as well as one builder inductee will be honoured with a star in the Walk of Fame. Inductees will be chosen by a committee of individuals from recommendations based on a national survey. The ceremony will occur each year in June to commemorate Portugal Day.
