Table Tennis Canada is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to join Abuse-Free Sport, the new independent program to prevent and address maltreatment in sport.

Table Tennis Canada, and its stakeholders at the national level, will have access to the services of the “Office of the Sport Integrity Commissioner” (OSIC), which serves as the central hub of Abuse-Free Sport, following a transition period, which will end no later than June 30th.

Prior to June 30th, 2023, Table Tennis Canada participants who have experienced or witnessed abuse will continue to have access to independent third-party (ITP) services through TTCAN’s ITP, Richard Mclaren.

Table Tennis Canada is proud to be part of this new initiative to deal uniformly with cases of abuse and maltreatment in sport in Canada.

There is more information about the Abuse-Free Sport program HERE, and on the OSIC HERE.
