As stated in Minister Qualtrough’s update on the transition of the OSIC and the Abuse-Free Sport Program: “In December 2023, the Government of Canada announced that OSIC and the Abuse-Free Sport Program would be transitioned out of the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada (SDRCC) to preserve both the independence of the Program and of the SDRCC in its statutory role as an alternative dispute resolution service provider, ensure independence, best support athletes and those seeking its services, and to further strengthen the integrity of the Canadian sport system.”
