As a sport community, we share a commitment to ensuring a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment throughout our sport system.

We believe that quality sport experiences are those where all individuals feel welcomed, accepted and respected.

To understand more about our commitment to safe, welcoming and inclusive environments, see this joint statement by the Canadian Paralympic Committee and Canadian Olympic Committee.

In order to better support safe, welcoming and inclusive sport, there are a number of areas and frameworks that shape how we approach creating these environments, including diversity and inclusion, safe sport and quality sport.
