Policies and Publications

Special Olympics Canada is currently developing Pan-Canadian Policies and Procedures that Special Olympics Newfoundland & Labrador will be adopting to keep in line with the rest of Canada.

Like any organization, we have a detailed series of rules and regulation to ensure that our program and services are run in a uniform and appropriate manner.  These guidelines also ensure fair treatment of all those who choose to be involved with Special Olympics, as well as reputable business practices within our daily operations.

If you have any questions regarding Policy & Procedures please contact our Executive Director (administrative policies) or our Program Director (sports-related policies).
