March 22, 2023 – In collaboration with several sport partners, Sport Law and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) will be hosting legal and leadership workshops across the country to increase the capacity of sport leaders to manage the complexities of leading an ethically driven and legally sound sport organization.

The Hope on the Horizon Tour was conceived as part of Sport Law and the CCES’s commitment to meaningfully support the community that we have been a part of for over 30 years. In response to increased expectations on ethically managing and governing provincial, territorial and community sport organizations, these workshops will focus on supporting the leaders that are an instrumental part of the Canadian sport landscape.

“We believe that hope is the one thing that can change everything. As a result, we have committed to launching Hope on the Horizon Tour, a national initiative hosted in collaboration with provincial and territorial partners
who want to join us in a coordinated effort that connects, educates, and inspires leaders to modernize their business practices,” shared Steve Indig, Sport Law partner. 

“The CCES believes in working collaboratively to address unethical behaviours and promoting a values-based approach that will ensure positive sport experiences for all. As part of our commitment to fostering safe and welcoming environments through True Sport, we are excited to support provincial and territorial sport leaders who are integral to making sport better,” said Karri Dawson, Executive Director, Values-Based Sport, CCES.

The following collaborators have confirmed their participation in the Hope on the Horizon Tour and we are working with several others to bring meaningful legal and leadership solutions to community, provincial and territorial sport leaders:
