The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport Signs on to Abuse-Free Sport


The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to join Abuse-Free Sport, the new independent program to prevent and address maltreatment in sport.

The CCES and its stakeholders (board members, employees, casual staff, volunteers, and contractors) 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, effective March 29.

The CCES recognizes that safe sport is everyone’s responsibility. We’re fully committed to doing our part to support a growing national movement that is changing the culture of sport in this country. As part of that commitment, we’re pleased to sign on to Abuse-Free Sport and to have the OSIC administer our safe sport complaints,” said Jeremy Luke, CEO and President of the CCES. 

In addition to the CCES joining the Abuse-Free Sport program, the current Independent Third Party (ITP) services led by Hugh Fraser will remain in place for complaints not covered by the the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (UCCMS). Anonymous complaints can be submitted to the ITP by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
