Safety & Risk Management


Abusive Parent Dispute Resolution Policy (HNS)
The Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission and Hockey Nova Scotia have worked collaboratively to find a way of addressing the valid concerns of HNS to curb abusive behaviour of any person involved with HNS while at the same time preserving the ability of children to play hockey despite the actions of parents. After discussions with the Commission and members of the public concerned about this issue, HNS has created a Dispute Resolution Policy.
The full Dispute Resolution Policy is available on both the Hockey Nova Scotia website ( and on your Association’s website. Please take the time to read and understand the Dispute Resolution Policy since it forms part of the obligations binding the registrants.
