Update on Combative Sport Legislation

Tuesday November 11th, 2014


Attention:  Judo Ontario Members.
Over the past decade there has been discussion over a Criminal Code that prohibited Combative Sports in Canada.  The Government of Ontario with the Ontario Amateur Combative Sports, including Judo, have been working on making an amendment to this code for the past 3 years.   A proposal has now been put forward by Steve Harlow our Assistant Deputy Minster to propose a regulation designating Amateur Combative Sports that would include Judo.  I have attached a memorandum from the minister for your interest.  We will continue to work on your behalf to see this through.
Aartje Sheffield, President of Judo Ontario
