The CCES Seeks Organizations to Participate in Survey About Non-Binary Athlete Participation

(Ottawa, Ontario – April 7, 2020) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is looking for Canadian sport organizations from all levels and sports to complete a one-hour telephone survey with an independent contractor to discuss what supports sport organizations require with regards to the inclusion of non-binary athletes.

The CCES will use the survey results to identify gaps and opportunities with the goal of increasing non-binary participation. Non-binary is an umbrella term for gender identities that fall outside of the male-female binary. This initiative will advance the CCES’s vision of sport in Canada that is fair, safe and open to everyone by contributing to a culture of safe sport in which athletes may be their fullest and most authentic selves.

We invite representatives from national, multisport, provincial and territorial, and community or grassroots sport organizations who are familiar with their membership demographics to complete the survey.  

Interviews will take place between April 20 and 30, 2020. Interested organizations should email [email protected] by April 15, 2020. Deadline extended to April 30!
