Virtual Safe Sport Forum a success

With more than 150 people virtually in attendance, the 2021 Safe Sport Forum hosted by Brock's Centre for Sport Capacity was a major success. The event was held online from June 16 to 18, with four panel discussions that aimed to advance the conversation on how to make sport in Canada safer for all. Participants represented 11 of Canada's provinces and territories, bringing diverse backgrounds in the sport industry from national, provincial and local organizations. Issues discussed included athletes' voices, governance and system re-engineering, legal implications and coach education.
