Legendary singer/songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie honoured The Tragically Hip, while Canadian Olympic legends Andre De Grasse and Donovan Bailey also took part in some very special tributes. Andre recognized late former Grey Cup and Stanley Cup champion Lionel Conacher, who also went on to become a member of Ontario's parliament. Donovan sang one of The Tragically Hip's biggest hits while helping induct them.
Jully Black and several of the 2021 inductees were also in attendance to be honoured, since the coronavirus pandemic meant there was no gala held last year. Jully, considered by many critics as one of Canada's all-time greatest singers, received her Walk of Fame star at the event, too.
