Safe Sport

The Ottawa New Edinburgh Club
is PROUD TO BE a safe sport club


Safe Sport is about creating a culture where everyone can thrive in Sport at all levels of participation free from maltreatment. The ONEC Safe Sport policy integrates and adopts Safe Sport policy from our National Sport organizations.  We are working with our Provincial and National Organizations to ensure we advance a respectful sport culture at ONEC.
Action Plan

If you know of, or suspect that you or anyone associated with ONEC is experiencing maltreatment, you can follow the steps below to report to an Independent Third Party (ITP).  ITPs employ highly trained and skilled professionals equipped to deal with Safe Sport issues with sensitivity and confidence.

They will be able to review, advise and refer issues for further action independently of ONEC.  Depending on the nature of the complaint, you will be assigned a Complaint Resolution Officer (CRO) from either a National or Provincial Organization or locally at ONEC.
