SAFE IN SPORT PROGRAM
The safety of its participants is of paramount importance to Canada Inline. Canada Inline's Safe In Sport is the organization's program related to off-rink safety.
Canada Inline's Reporting Policy is a key part of its Safe In Sport Program and an effective reporting policy is crucial to preventing abuse.
The Policy requires that every employee or volunteer of any Canada Inline Program must report (1) actual or perceived violations of the Safe In Sport Program Policies, (2) any violations of the policies prohibiting Sexual Abuse, Physical Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Bullying, Threats and Harassment, and Hazing, and (3) suspicions or allegations of child physical or sexual abuse to the appropriate Canada Inline representatives.
Additionally, in all cases involving suspicions or allegations of child physical or sexual abuse, every employee or volunteer of Canada Inline Programs must also report to the appropriate law enforcement authorities.
