SDRCC Launches a Community-wide Survey on the Idea of an Ombuds Program
Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada – Montréal (Québec) – The idea of creating an Ombuds Program for the Canadian sport community has recently been revived by the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada (SDRCC). A working committee was appointed by its Board of Directors to “engage in a consultative process to clarify needs and expectations of the sport community with regards to an eventual Ombuds Program, to formulate recommendations pertaining to the scope of service of an Ombuds Program and to evaluate the resources required to establish such program.”
On online survey was developed by that committee with the intent of reaching as many members as possible in the sport community (including athletes, coaches, volunteers, parents, officials and staff members), and obtain their input into what an Ombuds Program for sport could look like in our country. The SDRCC invites as many people as possible to take the survey and promote it through their sport organizations’ websites and social media. The survey will be closed on June 24, 2016.
