Safe Sport: Canadian Sport Helpline

    Special Olympics Nova Scotia is committed to providing a safe and supportive sport environment for our athletes and volunteers. We have a screening and training program for our volunteers and coaches and follow the rule of two at all levels.


    Are you a victim or witness of harassment, abuse or discrimination in sport?  Contact the Canadian Sport Helpline to share your concerns and be referred to the appropriate resources.

    The Canadian Sport Helpline is funded by Government of Canada.

    Safe Sport Training:

    Creating a culture where everyone can thrive is a shared responsibility. The Safe Sport Training module developed by the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) will help anyone involved in sport identify and prevent situations of maltreatment.

    Together, we can make sport safe for everyone.  Please visit for more information.
