Safe Sport Helpline

The Canadian Sport Helpline is a national toll-free helpline offering assistance to victims or witnesses of harassment, abuse, or discrimination in sport.

Offered in partnership by the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada (SDRCC) and the Canadian Centre for Mental Health in Sport (CCMHS), this anonymous, confidential, independent service allows people to share and validate their concerns, obtain guidance on required next steps, and get referrals to other resources for follow up.

The helpline is staffed by a team of practitioners from the CCMHS with expertise in counselling, psychology, and sport.

Access the helpline toll free from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Eastern Time), seven days a week by telephone, text, live chat or email in both official languages.

Safe Sport

Anyone involved in sport should be able to thrive and perform at their best without fear of abuse, neglect, or other maltreatment. Creating safe sport environments that provide those conditions is a collective effort — one that requires proper training so people can recognize maltreatment and prevent or address it.

Safe sport is a prevalent ethical issue in Canadian sport. The entire sport ecosystem stands to lose if we do not collectively foster a fundamental culture change that minimizes the threats to sport and ensures safe sport experiences for all participants. Safe sport is everyone's responsibility.

- The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport

In Canada, the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (UCCMS) provides the foundation for the development of a coordinated implementation strategy to prevent and address maltreatment across all levels of the sport system, and for all participants, such as athletes, coaches, officials, administrators, and practitioners. The document is a result of an extensive consultation process that sought insight and expertise from within the sport system and from external subject matter experts.
