BC's Sport Dispute Prevention and Resolution Framework
viaSport has developed a Dispute Prevention and Resolution Framework in partnership with the SDRCC for use by the sport sector in British Columbia. The goal of the Framework is to help guide and support BC's provincial sport organizations (PSOs) to reduce the number of sport disputes through the following framework sections:
|Framework:||Dispute Prevention and Resolution|
|Prevention||Reducing the number and magnitude of disputes|
|Early Resolution||Minimizing the negative impacts of disputes by resolving early, without escalation|
|PSO Appeal||Ensuring effective in-house resolution of disputes by provincial sport organizations|
|External Appeal||Accessing an independent, external appeal process as an alternative to litigation|
