Bernice Carnegie

Bernice Carnegie, the daughter of late hockey pioneer Herb Carnegie, will be inducted into the Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame later this year.
Established in 1994, the organization honours athletes, administrators, officials, media and individuals who have achieved the highest standard of sports excellence.
“This award is special because I am being recognized for my work in sports administration,” Carnegie said. “It feels good to know people are paying attention to what I have been doing to change the face of hockey in Canada.”
She and Bryant McBride co-founded the Carnegie Initiative that hosts an annual summit, bringing together stakeholders to discuss issues of racism and inclusivity in hockey.
Nearly seven decades ago, Herb Carnegie introduced the Future Aces Creed to enhance the development of young participants in the Future Aces Hockey School he and Doug Hester started in 1955 at Mitchell Field.
Over the years, Bernice Carnegie has led the way to spread her dad’s message.
Schools around the world have adopted the Future Aces Creed that inspires parents, educators and community leaders to encourage young people to focus on virtuous qualities, including good attitude, sound ethics, service and civic responsibility.
Through a foundation bearing Carnegie’s name, hundreds of dollars of scholarships were presented to high school graduates across Canada pursuing higher education.
Many of the recipients are excelling in myriad professional fields.
As a community leader for four decades, Carnegie has been the recipient of numerous federal, provincial and community awards for education, development, communication, speaking and volunteerism.
She is the executive producer of the captivating documentary, ‘Beyond Their Years’, whose work stands as a testament to her father’s enduring legacy, inspiring generations to come.
Born in Toronto and raised in North York, Carnegie is a renowned speaker, author, and storyteller.
The induction ceremony takes place on November 7.
