Provincial Sports Agency retools framework to address misconduct in sports

Sport Manitoba has recently revamped the way they address mistreatment and misconduct in sport.


President and CEO Janet McMahon says their Pathway to Safer Sport is a framework of tools, templates, and resources that assist Provincial Sport Organizations and all who participate in sport in Manitoba to create a safer sport system.


One aspect of this framework is the Safe Sport Line, which McMahon elaborates on here.


“We have a Safe Sport Line that people can call and at this point, they can email. A trusted, trained individual will speak to them about their issue might be and either provide some support to them or direct them where it’s best to land, whether it’s a complaint or an appeal or some kind of dispute. It’s just a trusted individual to talk about their situation.”


The Safe Sport Line can be accessed by phone at 1-833-656-SAFE or email at help at


Catch Thompson Today at 12:40 and 5:10 this afternoon for more on the Pathway to Safer Sport.
