The CHPTA is currently looking for nominees for the Canadian Hardware and Housewares Industry Hall of Fame.

The Association is planning on holding induction ceremonies later this fall to welcome new members to the Industry Hall of Fame.

Hall of Fame Overview

Since 1984, the Canadian Hardware and Housewares Industry Hall of Fame Award has honoured individuals who have been builders of successful enterprises in the industry, and who have made outstanding contributions to the industry through their leadership and innovation.  In this, the 40th year, the CHPTA is honoured to serve as the custodian of the Hall.

The award is given to an individual in recognition from his or her peers for outstanding achievement, service and contribution to the Canadian hardware and housewares industry over a long career.
