Equity and Access Policy

Taekwondo Manitoba is committed to ensuring that equity and access is incorporated across all aspects of its activities. In doing so, it acknowledges and adopts the following foundation principle from the Canadian Sport Policy:

Sport is based on equity and access. Sport is welcoming and inclusive, offering an opportunity to participate without regard to age, gender, race, language, sexual orientation, disability, geography, or economic circumstances.

  • Supports equity and access for underrepresented groups that have been identified by Sport Canada such as Women, Aboriginals and People with Disabilities.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person and will treat everyone equally within the context of their role (player, coach, official and volunteer), regardless of age, ability, gender, race, ethnicity, religious belief, sexuality or social/economic status.
  • Is committed to everyone having the right to enjoy their sport in an environment free from threat of intimidation, harassment and abuse.
  • Everyone has a responsibility to oppose discriminatory behaviour and promote equality of opportunity.
  • Will deal with any incidence of discriminatory behaviour according to the Code of Conduct and Discipline policies.
