Safe Sport

The CCES continues to advocate for a Universal Code of Conduct for Canadian sport that will address all forms of maltreatment and is administered by an independent body.

Through collaboration and harmonization across the sport sector, a universal program administered by an independent body that includes sanctions will make sport safer for all athletes, coaches, officials, administrators and support staff, at all levels of sport in Canada. 

At Sport Canada’s request, the CCES drafted a universal code of conduct and associated sanctions, and is leading an ongoing multi-step process that includes consultation with independent experts, partner review and sport community feedback. The draft considered core components and consensus statements developed by the national sport organization (NSO) Safe Sport Working Groups. Read more about the consultation process.

This project is continuing to evolve. Watch this space for future developments.
