Safe Sport Speak Up Line

As part of a national commitment to fostering a safe and inclusive sport environment, Speed Skating NWT and Speed Skating Canada are partnering on the launch the Safe Sport Speak Up Line, a new independent reporting mechanism that supports the intake and management of complaints from all speed skating participants, including those in the Northwest Territories.

The Safe Sport Speak Up Line can be used by all past and present participants involved with Speed Skating NWT and it’s member clubs, including athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers. Items that can be reported include governance disputes, non-compliance with organizational policies, and conduct or behaviour that results or has the potential to result in physical or psychological harm, including but not limited to, maltreatment, abuse of authority, bullying, harassment and discrimination.

The Safe Sport Speak Up Line is accessible online and by telephone. Complaints can be raised through the third-party hotline – on a confidential basis, with or without anonymity – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (including weekends and holidays).
