NB SAFE SPORT DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROGRAM

There has been a push nationally to make our sport system in this country as safe and positive as possible. It is widely recognized that when disputes arise they are a drain on the sport system, absorbing time, volunteer/staff resources, money, and energy that could otherwise be invested to increase development, opportunity, and participation in sport across the province. 

The Program is a collaboration between Sport New Brunswick (SNB) and the Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture (Sport & Recreation Branch) (SRB). The Program strives to provide support to a complainant within the New Brunswick amateur sport system for certain disputes by an unbiased third-party mechanism.
