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: https://sportintegritycommissioner.ca/report.
For other matters, Water Polo Canada’s Independent Third Party (ITP) - Ms. Lise Maclean - is a key point of contact for individuals wishing to make a complaint under Water Polo Canada’s Code of Conduct and Ethics / Discipline and Complaints Policy or any other relevant policies.

The role of the Independent Third Party may include:
Lise Maclean, MBA, CHRL, is a former executive and certified human resources professional with over 25 years of experience in the public, not-for-profit, and private sectors.
