Subject: Ontario Soccer Issues Request for Support to Provincial Chief Medical Officer
Ontario Soccer continues to work in consultation with Canada Soccer and the Government of Ontario, as we prepare for Return to Play 2021. Ontario Soccer will keep the membership updated with the most recent developments surrounding Ontario Soccer’s Return to Play Plan.
Ontario Soccer has been working diligently with the relevant Public Health and Sport authorities to ensure a safe and successful Return to Play this summer for our members.
As part of that ongoing effort, Ontario Soccer today issued a letter to Dr. David Williams, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer, detailing how Soccer in Ontario is a vital platform for restoring Ontario’s health and tabling specific requests to help our sport safely recover and better service our participants this year.
Ontario Soccer’s request of support letter, can be used by our membership to contact their own local MPs, MPPs, Municipal Officials and Public Health Units.
The letter, which can be found here, may be replicated and used for your own local efforts, details why soccer is well-positioned for a safe Return to Play this summer and how our communities can be leaders in a holistic solution to dealing with the damaging effects Covid-19 has had on Ontario.
We encourage our membership to respectfully contact their local authorities to share this news and in their efforts to make change at the grassroots level.
