The federal government on Friday granted large sums of money to the organizations Swimming Canada and Skate Canada to allow them to continue their activities and contribute to safety in sport.
These funds are disbursed annually through Sport Canada's Sport Support Program to "uphold important standards of governance, accountability and safe sport," Ottawa said in a statement.
Of the amount of $7,523,136 donated to Swimming Canada, $40,000 will be dedicated to safety. As for Skate Canada, an envelope of $2,426,500 will be given to him, of which $50,500 will be used for security.
For each federation, mandatory training will be offered to athletes, coaches and support staff in order to prevent and manage cases of abuse. The Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (CCUMS) will also be incorporated into organizations' policies.
At the sports level, $250,000 will be used to organize the FINA Swimming World Cup in Toronto, which is held from Friday to Sunday. An amount of $150,000 will be used for the 2022 Skate Canada International, which takes place the same weekend in Mississauga, Ont.
