Independent Third Party

On March 24, 2023, Water Polo Canada (WPC) officially joined Abuse-Free Sport, the new independent program to prevent and address maltreatment in sport.

Please have a look to the NEW COMPLAINT PROCESS

For concerns where the respondent (the person who engaged in maltreatment) is a Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (UCCMS) Participant, please contact Abuse-Free Sport. UCCMS participants include athletes, coaches, officials and WPC staff operating at the National level. Abuse-Free Sport reports can be filed through:

For other matters, please contact

The existence of this Independent Third-Party does not prevent individuals from trying to resolve matters at the club or provincial level or directly with Water Polo Canada, if they are comfortable in doing so.

The role of the Independent Third Party may include:

  • Provide confidential advice to individuals considering a complaint.
  • Refer individuals to legal, mental health or other support resources.
  • Review and analyze incoming complaints and determine whether they are admissible under WPC’s policies and Code of Conduct.
  • Determine the appropriate jurisdiction to manage the complaint (Abuse-Free Sport, WPC, Province/Territory or Club).
  • Appoint an investigator or discipline panel, as required by WPC policies.
  • Serve as the point of contact for all parties involved in a complaint, operating independently of WPC.
