Build Leaders, Celebrate Legends
MARKETING HALL OF LEGENDS

The Toronto Chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA) is proud to present Canada's Marketing Hall of Legends. The AMA 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.

This year-long program is a continuous celebration of the home-grown Marketing talent and pedigree in Canada.

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

Our aim is to honor those who have made significant contributions from the marketing community and share their knowledge with the next generation of aspiring marketers.

MHOL has also expanded its recognition of Canada’s newest Marketing Legend Inductees through its Legendary Leadership Event Series.  Each event in the series explores the stories, achievements, influence and learnings of a different Marketing Legend and provide a forum for them to engage the current and future marketing community in thoughtful conversation on the forefront of industry and societal trends and innovations. 

The criteria for selection is based on those Canadians whose ideas and contributions to marketing and brand building have made a tremendous impact in the Canadian and/or global marketplace.

Canada’s Marketing Hall of Legends brings together marketers, media, agencies and academic communities from across the country to select those candidates whom they feel meet and exceed these criteria.
