Canadian Sport Centre Manitoba (CSCM) is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to join Abuse-Free Sport, the new independent program to prevent and address maltreatment in sport.
CSCM, and its staff and board members, will have access to the services of the Office of the Sport Integrity Commissioner (OSIC), which serves as the central hub of Abuse-Free Sport.
“CSCM is proud to formalize our historical advocacy for safe, healthy, sporting environments for all participants. Our official adoption of Abuse-Free Sport and OSIC as the administrator of any potential safe sport complaints is logical the next step in this journey,” Jeff Powell, CSCM Executive Director said. “For several years the sport community has been calling for this kind of consistency in a national, independent program and this is the manifestation of those requests.”
CSCM has completed the required policy changes and fully adopted the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (UCCMS), prior to joining the Abuse-Free Sport program.
