In 2023, Nordiq Canada released a pan-Canadian Safe Sport policy suite, supported by a Safe Sport Toolkit, which divisional provincial sport organizations and clubs are required to adopt. XCSO adopted the policy suite effective July 1/23.  Walden Cross Country adopted the policies effective November 1/23 and is committed to implementing Safe Sport in all of our activities.
