Special Olympics Canada is currently developing Pan-Canadian Policies and Procedures that Special Olympics Newfoundland & Labrador will adopt to keep aligned with the rest of Canada.
Like any organization, we have a detailed series of rules and regulations to ensure that our programs 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.
