Safe Sport



Skate Canada’s vision is to inspire all Canadians to embrace the joy of skating. In pursuit of that objective, Skate Canada places the highest priority on ensuring there is a safe, professional, inclusive and respectful environment for all participants in the skating community. It’s Skate Canada’s goal and commitment to be a leading safe sport organization in Canada and internationally that treats individuals with respect, dignity, and fairness in alignment with our core values, whereby all participants are entitled to feel and know they are safe, and in a zero-tolerance environment that is free from all forms of misconduct, which also includes maltreatment. In support of Skate Canada’s vision and core values, this National Safe Sport Program has been established to ensure that we are providing the safest possible environment for all participants in the skating community. This National Safe Sport Program promotes awareness, fairness, equity, transparency, prevention and the appropriate timely response and resolution of reported violations to this National Safe Sport Program, and policies and procedures thereunder. Critical to creating and maintaining a safe environment includes the establishment of preventative measures and having accessible reporting and resolution mechanisms in place to provide fair and equitable treatment of all components of Skate Canada’s National Safe Sport Program. This includes the fair and impartial management of complaints of misconduct, incidents of injury, and general disputes. PURPOSE: The purpose of this handbook is to clearly communicate the key principles of Skate Canada’s National Safe Sport Program and commitment to everyone’s safety. The safe sport rules, policies, procedures, and guidelines set forth in this handbook, apply to all Skate Canada sections, clubs, schools, coaches, members and registrants. All Skate Canada sections, clubs, schools, coaches, members and registrants, as a condition of Skate Canada’s Club and Skating School Minimum Operating Standards Policy, must agree to and must comply with Skate Canada programs, which includes the National Safe Sport Program.
