The Hockey Hall of Fame was founded in 1943 to establish a memorial to those who have developed Canada's great winter sport - ice hockey. Its mandate is to recognize and honour the achievements of individuals and teams who have brought special distinction to the game of hockey and those who have made a major contribution to the development and advancement of hockey anywhere in the world. Built in 1885, the historic bank building at BCE Place, Toronto began a new era as "a cathedral for the icons of hockey" officially opened to the public on June 18, 1993.
