The information below relates to sanctioning for indoor and outdoor track and field competitions, as well as cross-country races. Inquiries may be directed to Randolph Fajardo, Technical Manager.
For road and trail races please apply for sanctioning here.
Starting in 2023, Athletics Ontario rolled out a tiered sanctioning system (Gold, Silver, Bronze) in order to help members determine which competitions will have performances included in the World Athletics world rankings and Athletics Canada national rankings. Each tier of sanctioning will require specific requirements that will align with national and international rule requirements. For a breakdown of the requirements for each tier of sanctioning, please download the sanctioning application form linked above.
OFFICIAL’S POST-EVENT SURVEY – Only events that have received World Athletics sanctioning will need to have their chiefs or referees complete a post-event survey for each event discipline after the completion of the competition. Any questions or concerns about the post-event survey should be directed to [email protected].
