Abuse Free Sport Resources
CKC has joined Abuse-Free Sport, the independent program to prevent and address maltreatment in sport. CKC and its stakeholders 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 for matters relating to alleged breaches of the UCCMS by CKC UCCMS Participants.
The UCCMS addresses:
The Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (UCCMS) is the
core document that sets harmonized rules that have been adopted by Canadian National Sport
Organizations and Multi-Sport Service Organizations. The goal of the UCCMS is to advance a
respectful sport culture that delivers quality, inclusive, accessible, welcoming and safe sport
⦁ common principles and a commitment to advance a respectful sport culture;
⦁ standard definitions of various forms of maltreatment, including grooming, neglect, and
physical, sexual, and psychological maltreatment;
⦁ a list of other prohibited behavior such as retaliation, failure to report maltreatment,
intentionally filing false allegations, misuse of power, etc.; and
⦁ a framework for determining appropriate sanctions against such prohibited behavior.
The UCCMS is administered at the National Level by Abuse-Free Sport, a program created by the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada (SDRCC) according to the mandate it received from the Government of Canada, for preventing and addressing maltreatment in sport. SDRCC is a non-for-
profit organization created under the Physical Activity and Sport Act (S.C. 2003, c.2).
The Office of the Sport Integrity Commissioner (OSIC) is a functionally independent division of
the SDRCC and is responsible to administer the UCCMS and relevant aspects of Abuse-Free Sport.
