The Office of the Sport Integrity Commissioner (OSIC) is responsible to administer the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (UCCMS) using trauma-informed processes that are compassionate, efficient and provide fairness, respect and equity to all parties involved.

The OSIC operates as an independent division of the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada (SDRCC). The SDRCC was created by the Physical Activity and Sport Act (S.C. 2003, c.2) (the “Act”) with the mandate to provide to the sport community: a) a national alternative dispute resolution service for sport disputes; and, b) expertise and assistance regarding alternative dispute resolution. The SDRCC was also mandated by the Government of Canada, on July 6, 2021, to establish an independent safe sport mechanism to implement the UCCMS at the national level.

As a new functionally independent division of the SDRCC, the OSIC contributes to the advancement of the UCCMS by: (i) overseeing a complaint intake process; (ii) conducting preliminary assessments and commissioning independent investigations, when warranted; (iii) maintaining a database of imposed sanctions; and (iv) monitoring compliance by sporting organizations and issuing reports as required.
