In 1960, Foss became an honorary member of the Vintage Automobile Club of Montreal.

Also in 1960, Foss was awarded an honorary membership to the Antique Automobile Club of America as one of only two Canadians to have received this honour. The other is Colonel Robert Samuel McLaughlin who started the McLaughlin Motor Car Company in 1907 as one of the first major automobile manufacturers in Canada. The McLaughlin Motor Car Company ultimately evolved into General Motors of Canada.

In 1997 the City of Sherbrooke, Quebec erected a stone monument near the original site of his bicycle repair shop.
