MONTREAL—Karate Canada has continued its commitment to ensuring a safe and welcoming environment for all by signing an agreement to join Abuse-Free Sport, the new independent program to prevent and address maltreatment in sport.
Karate Canada, and its stakeholders at the national level, 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 no later than March 20, 2023
“Karate Canada believes that everyone in sport has the right to enjoy a positive experience regardless of skill level or ability. A safe and inclusive training and competitive environment for athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and fans is critical to the long-term health of our sport and is our number one priority,” said Chris Bright, executive director, Karate Canada. “Signing onto the Abuse-Free Sport program is another step forward in our continued commitment to ensure the preservation of a safe karate community.”
