Last week, Field Hockey Canada was the subject of an article in the Globe and Mail. In response to the assertions made to the paper, Field Hockey Canada had provided factual information as well as links to our audited Financial Statements, our annual report, governance and other reporting. All are a matter of public record but not necessarily reflected in the article. In response, Field Hockey Canada has shared the following notes with the Globe and Mail:
Ultimately our work and progress is our best response to the article as it serves to demonstrate that Field Hockey Canada is governed in a transparent manner.
As laid out in our 2020-2025 Strategic Plan, Field Hockey Canada is committed to building a stronger organization, a stronger system, leading to stronger international performances. Our values include accountability, transparency, teamwork, respect, integrity and fun. We live these values each day as we work tirelessly to build a quality sports experience for – and with – everyone in our community. We believe that sports have a profound and positive impact on people that extends way beyond the sports arena itself. Field Hockey Canada takes our responsibility as a Canadian sport leader very seriously and will continue to work on building and governing our sport at all levels.
