Ringette Ontario places the highest priority on a safe and fun environment for all its participants and we recognize responsibility to protect the health, safety, and physical and mental well-being of every individual that is involved in the ringette community.
Ringette Ontario takes situations involving misconduct or maltreatment very seriously. For this reason, Ringette Canada is committed to enacting and enforcing strong, clear, and effective policies and processes for preventing and addressing all forms of misconduct or maltreatment.
Ringette Ontario’s policies are intended to promote a Safe Sport environment in a manner that allows for consistent, immediate, appropriate, and meaningful action should any issues arise. They are also intended to prevent issues from arising in the first place by communicating expected standards of behaviour in advance.
If you or someone you know has not felt safe while participating in ringette or ringette related activities, and would like to report a serious incident to Ringette Ontario, please contact our Executive Director, Karla Xavier at email@example.com.
The Canadian Sport Helpline is a national toll-free helpline offering assistance to victims or witnesses of harassment, abuse or discrimination in sport.
Offered in partnership by the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada (SDRCC) and the Canadian Centre for Mental Health in Sport (CCMHS), this anonymous, confidential, independent service allows people to share and validate their concerns, obtain guidance on required next steps, and get referrals to other resources for follow up.
A CCMHS team of practitioners with expertise in counselling, psychology and sport act as helpline operators.
Access the helpline toll free from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Eastern Time), seven days a week by telephone, text, live chat or email in both official languages.
The Canadian Sport Helpline is funded by Government of Canada.
