I just sent in my consent form to participate in Gymnastics Canada’s new system for lodging complaints.
The goal is to make the process more independent. Hopefully better — though there are always unintended consequences of any change.
As of December 19, 2022, Gymnastics Canada is a Program Signatory of the Office of the Sport Integrity Commissioner (OSIC).
This means that, from the date, any allegation of maltreatment or other prohibited behavior, as defined in the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (UCCMS), against a UCCMS participant of Gymnastics Canada must be filed directly with the OSIC. …
To validate whether a complaint may be admissible to this service, or for assistance in filing a complaint, anyone can contact the Canadian Sport Helpline at 1 888 837-7678 or by email at info(a)abuse-free-sport.ca
Canadians should check their email to see if they have been asked to fill out this form as the deadline is December 19, 2022.
Anyone choosing not to sign on might have to terminate their affiliation with Gymnastics Canada.
