Angela James was one of the first three women inducted into the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) Hockey Hall of Fame in 2008 and one of the first two inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2010. She was inducted into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in 2009. James was named to the Order of Hockey in Canada in 2021. Angela's story is one full of overcoming systemic barriers to become a legend in her community that now bears her name on a sports Arena.
