CBC News: Ottawa establishing investigation unit, national toll-free helpline to address abuse in sport

On Wednesday afternoon, Duncan introduced an investigation unit for national sport organizations, multi-sport service organizations and Canadian sport centres. She says it will be an independent unit sports groups can call in to investigate all alleged incidents of harassment, abuse and discrimination.

The minister also announced a national toll-free confidential helpline for victims and witnesses of abuse in sport. "Since day one I've made ending abuse in sport my priority. These are another two measures in a long line of measures to protect our athletes," Duncan told CBC. "Now these sport groups can reach out to the investigative unit at any time and ask them to do an investigation."
