Hockey Canada has committed to hiring a “Director of Sports Safety – Abuse, Harassment and Abuse” to strengthen its overall sports safety framework.
The release came on Thursday as the sport’s national governing body continues its attempt to restore its credibility and public trust after a thorough scrutiny of its handling of previous sexual assault allegations.
The organization is seeking someone to lead the development, implementation and evaluation of an “overall multi-year strategy against abuse, harassment and abuse.”
