The federally funded not-for-profit that provides ADR services to the Canadian sports community has launched a survey on the Ombuds concept. The study comes out of an SDRCC working committee appointed to “engage in a consultative process to clarify needs and expectations of the sport community with regards to an eventual Ombuds Program, to formulate recommendations pertaining to the scope of service of an Ombuds Program and to evaluate the resources required to establish such program.”
An online survey seeks to reach stakeholders including athletes, coaches, volunteers, parents, officials and staff
members, and is available in English and French. The survey closes June 24, 2016. (SDRCC Press Release.)
