The Northwest Passage Hall of Fame

To celebrate the heroic effort of many explorers who contributed to the discovery of the Northwest Passage, the Vancouver Maritime Museum initiated the Northwest Passage Hall of Fame to honour individuals, vessels and expeditions who have successfully navigated through the entire Northwest Passage.

Each year, one individual, vessel and expedition will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

For our inaugural year, the Vancouver Maritime Museum has chosen the three inductees for historical reasons. For subsequent years, we would invite you to nominate individuals, vessels and expeditions to honour their achievements. A selection committee will decide on who the inductees will be each year, and the result will be announced at the annual award ceremony.

A nomination form will be available shortly. If you would like to nominate a candidate to enter the Northwest Passage Hall of Fame, please visit this page later to download the nomination form.
