Skate Canada places the highest priority on a safe and fun learning environment for all of its participants.
Several programs are planned for roll-out in the coming years based on Skate Canada’s Safe Sport Framework. These programs will facilitate best-in-class safety initiatives. It is Skate Canada’s goal and commitment to be the leading Safe Sport organization in Canada and the World.
Harassment, Bullying, and Abuse Prevention
In addition to responding to all complaints, the Safe Sport Department will introduce best in class education and training programs to different groups of stakeholders including, skaters, parents, officials, coaches, administrators, and volunteers. This education is a key component of Skate Canada’s harassment, bullying, and abuse prevention program, providing participants with information necessary to more effectively monitor the activities in sections, clubs and skating schools thereby minimizing the occurrence of such behaviour.
Concussion Education and Protocols
Skate Canada’s goal is to build awareness and influence behaviour thorough education, policies, and return to play protocols.

Skate Canada is currently developing a comprehensive course that will provide a full overview of the ERM framework and step-by-step instructions on how to complete the risk register. Tools, templates and additional resources will be available as well as opportunities for individual or group consultation.
