    SPORT FREE OF HARASSMENT AND BULLYING
    Creating an environment free from harassment and bullying is a topic that Canadians have found themselves considering over the past year. Sport is not immune to societal trends and incidents of inappropriate behaviour are frequently discussed in sport boardrooms across the country.

    CAAWS has collaborated with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES), the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) and the Sport Law & Strategy Group to bring sport leaders a blog series exploring the topic of harassment and bullying. This blog series will stimulate conversations and encourage the development practical solutions for the cultural health of sport organizations.
