Code of Conduct
Hurtful comments and social media cyber bullying shown towards current UKI Canada volunteers, WAO Team Management, WAO Team Canada members, and UKI Canadian Open volunteers will not be tolerated. Comments deemed bullying and inappropriate have been and will be flagged and will serve as grounds for refusing entry to UKI Canadian Open and future WAO Team Canada applications will be rejected (with the latter requiring approval by WAO). Though in certain circumstance a warning may be provided, that won’t always be the case, and in appropriate cases sanctions may be imposed without any warning.
Examples of what constitutes cyberbullying include communications that seek to intimidate, control, manipulate, put down, falsely discredit, or humiliate the recipient. The behaviour does not have to be repeated. One comment may constitute bullying.
Please consider how your Facebook post will affect the volunteers working behind the scenes at UKI. Constructive criticism about processes, growth of the organization, and ideas on how we can improve and offers to help are gratefully received but need to be sent via the appropriate channels so that we can review them. Facebook is not the appropriate channel. Please use the most relevant contact(s) on our Contact page.
All the work within UKI Canada and WAO Team Canada is done by VOLUNTEERS – please think of the impact of your words before hitting send. We wish for this amazing organization to continue to grow and we need volunteers to ensure its continued success.
