Taekwondo Canada is committed to providing its members with safe, inclusive, training and competition environments, raising awareness about misconduct in sport and providing training and resources to clubs, coaches, officials, athletes, parents and volunteers.

As part of its commitment to Safe Sport and in accordance with Sport Canada requirements, Taekwondo Canada has contracted Ms. Gillian Hnatiw to be an independent Third-Party contact.
