Coaches as Professionals
Coaches of Canada is the ONLY organization that grants official designation to professionals in the field of coaching in Canada. We continue to “advance the profession of coaching…” and exist to:
- Protect and serve the public interest;
- Protect the character and status of members of the profession;
- Develop, coordinate and provide services to members;
- Organize and promote educational and professional development opportunities;
- Represent members and interests before governmental bodies; and
- Promote the profession of coaching.
All members of Coaches of Canada are required annually, upon renewal, to sign off on the Code of Conduct and Code of Ethics or the corporation, as well as the Canadian Policy Against Doping in Sport.
Coaches of Canada also endorsed the National Code & Canadian Policy and encourages all members to familiarize themselves with this sport policy.
