All individuals who participate in freestyle skiing in Canada have the right to participate in a safe and inclusive environment that is free of abuse, harassment, or discrimination; Freestyle Canada has zero tolerance for such behaviour. The UCCMS is the core document that sets harmonized rules for conduct and behaviour to advance a respectful sport culture that delivers quality, inclusive, accessible, welcoming, and safe sport experiences.
Any allegation of maltreatment or other prohibited behaviour as defined in the UCCMS against a UCCMS Participant of Freestyle Canada must be reported to the OSIC in accordance with the process laid out on OSIC’s website.
To validate whether a complaint is admissible to this service, or for assistance in filing a complaint, individuals can contact the Canadian Sport Helpline at 1 888 837 7678 or by email at [email protected]
Any individual that uses the OSIC’s services will have access to a wide range of resources, including victim services and referrals to specialized mental health professionals and experienced lawyers.
