Skate Canada considers harassment, bullying, and abuse a very serious matter and responds to all complaints. Following the Complaint and Investigation procedures, we ensure the provision of a fair and reasonable process for handling complaints within a timely manner. In addition, a National Review Board has been appointed to consider appropriate cases. Members of this Board have expert knowledge of Skate Canada’s Bylaws, Policies and Procedures and extensive experience in alternate dispute resolution and sports-related issues.
In addition to responding to all complaints, the Safe Sport Department will introduce best in class education and training programs to different groups of stakeholders including, skaters, parents, officials, coaches, administrators, and volunteers. This education is a key component of Skate Canada’s harassment, bullying, and abuse prevention program, providing participants with information necessary to more effectively monitor the activities in sections, clubs and skating schools thereby minimizing the occurrence of such behaviour.
