Abuse Free Sport 


Canada Snowboard is proud to be an Abuse Free Sport signatory, meaning all complaints / reports about alleged violations of the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (UCCMS), by UCCMS participants (National Team Athletes, Coaches, IST Staff, Canada Snowboard Staff, Contractors and Board of Directors) must be submitted to The Office of Sport Integrity (OSIC). 

You can file a Complaint or Report to the OSIC by submitting a secure, interactive online intake form available at this link.


Canada Snowboard Independent Third Party


Canada Snowboard has engaged the services of an Independent Third Party, Brian Ward, available to receive any complaints which fall outside of the realm of Abuse Free Sport. Brian's role is to remain at arm's length from Canada Snowboard to provide our Snowboard community with an expert and objective facilitation for the reporting of all Safe Sport related complaints of misconduct.

If you have a complaint / reported allegation of misconduct, or you need independent advice on next steps for filing a complaint, please email Brian at fnsrfcbeg_jjqef@cevzhf.pn. He will ensure that your identity is kept confidential.




If you are still unsure whether your complaint should go to the Canada Snowboard Independent Third Party, or the Office of Sport Integrity (OSIC), the below flow chart may help you in identifying where to submit your complaint.
