The Portuguese Canadian Walk of Fame is located at the recently inaugurated Camoes Square situated at the corner of College and Crawford St. Positioned in the heart of a vibrant community of people of all backgrounds, it is intended to honour those with a Portuguese background who have made an impact and significant contribution to the advancement of Portuguese Canadian culture in Canada.
It was inaugurated on June 2nd, 2013 during celebrations to commemorate 60 years of immigration to Canada.
Each year three new inductees will be honoured with a star in the Walk of Fame. Inductees will be chosen by a committee of individuals from recommendations based on a national survey. The ceremony will occur each year in June to commemorate Portugal Day.
