Canadian Guideline on Concussions in Sport

The Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport has been developed to ensure that athletes with a suspected concussion receive timely and appropriate care, and proper management to allow them to return to their sport.

This document underpins the protocol for the majority of National Sport Organizations (NSO’s) in Canada.


Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport

The 2017 Concussion in Sport Group (CISG) consensus statement is designed to build on the principles outlined in the previous statements [1–4] and to develop further conceptual understanding of sport-related concussion (SRC) using an expert consensus-based approach. It is the most recent consensus statement available.


Concussion in para sport: the first position statement of the Concussion in Para Sport (CIPS) Group

Concussion is a frequent injury in many sports and is also common in para athletes. However, there is a lack of research related to concussions in para sport and prior Concussion in Sport (CIS) consensus papers have not focused on the needs of this population. To remedy this and to improve concussion care provided to para athletes, the concussion in para sport (CIPS) multidisciplinary expert group was created.
