Creating Inclusive Environments for Trans Participants in Canadian Sport: Guidance for Sport Organizations


Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport

This document is organized into four sections:

  1. Background knowledge and definitions that will help sport organizations become better informed about concepts and terms related to sex and gender, and their intersection with sport.
  2. Focuses on practice and policy guidance for recreational and developmental sport. Since the vast majority of Canadian sport participation is at the recreational or developmental level, adopting welcoming and inclusive policies and practices at this level will have the greatest impact.
  3. Addresses issues and considerations that are unique to the high-performance level of sport in Canada. Although the policy and practice recommendations in this section apply to a very small proportion of Canadians, there has been a disproportionate focus on this aspect in the development of trans inclusion policies, to date.
  4. Appendices include further detailed guidance on best practices and additional resources.
