“The athletes’ safety is a top priority for me as the Minister of Sport. To raise awareness about concussions, to prevent them and to manage them, we need every sport partner to take concrete measures. Since April 2021, all nationally funded sport organizations are mandated to have a concussion policy to ensure athletes’ safety.”

– The Honourable Pascale St-Onge, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec, January 2022
