About the Alberta Business Hall of Fame
In 1980, the Junior Achievement Alberta Business Hall of Fame was unveiled to identify and chronicle the lives of great Alberta men and women whose business leadership and community stewardship shaped the ways that people live, work, and interact.

With 76 Alberta men and women having the mark of distinction of being named as a Laureate, the Alberta Business Hall of Fame stands alone as Alberta’s highest business leadership honour. Inductees will also be recognized on the Alberta Business Hall of Fame Wall of Honour on the second floor of Manulife Place.
