Sport Free of Harassment and Bullying

Creating an environment free from harassment and bullying is a topic that Canadians have found themselves considering over the past year. Sport is not immune to societal trends and incidents of inappropriate behaviour are frequently discussed in sport boardrooms across the country. While the focus tends to be about the conduct we see on the playing field by athletes and coaches, we also know that malconduct extends into the executive offices and boardrooms of our sport governing bodies.

CAAWS has collaborated with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES), the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) and the Sport Law & Strategy Group to bring sport leaders a blog series exploring the topic of harassment and bullying.

It is our hope that this blog series will stimulate conversations and encourage the development practical solutions for the cultural health of sport organizations.
