Legends

- gallery under construction - Surely one to provoke discourse! With over 500 lacrosse players and builders along with 19 teams as honoured inductees in the CLhoF choosing a short list of legends for the Lacrosse 150 Celebration was no easy task. The 15 individuals selected are not only legends but are representative of the game's early 1900s filed game and post 1932 box game.

Minto Cup

The Minto Cup is now awarded annually to the champion junior men's lacrosse team of Canada. It was donated 1901 by the Governor General, Lord Minto, and was awarded to the senior men's champions of Canada through 1909.

CanLax 150 Retrospective

- still under construction but current work is displayed - The 150th Anniversary of Lacrosse Celebration was a once-in-a-lifetime event - a festival of activities to help honour and celebrate the history and cultural significance of Canada's national summer sport, lacrosse. We strongly believe that 2017, a year that marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation as well as the birth of the modern version of lacrosse, is the perfect occasion to re-introduce our country's first national sport to a new generation of Canadians
