Canadians who are directly affected by a situation of maltreatment in sport may be admissible to a range of support services, including mental health referrals and legal aid.

Beyond the initial support provided by operators at the Canadian Sport Helpline, eligible individuals have access to a suite of services through the Canadian Centre for Mental Health and Sport (CCMHS). Even before filing a complaint, they could be referred to psychologists, psychotherapists and counsellors, mental performance consultants, psychiatrists, and physicians.

Abuse-Free Sport will also provide access, under certain admissibility conditions, to a pool of specialized lawyers who offer legal advice and assistance to help parties navigate the complaint process.
