In August, Team Canada opened its “Sois Toi” [Be You] pop-up stores in Montreal in celebration of Pride 2018. Numerous Olympians attended the opening. In exchange for a contribution to You Can Play, Team Canada fans can purchase a customised “Be You/Sois Toi” T-shirt. You Can Play, an organisation dedicated to ensuring equality and safety for all athletes, is a partner of the Canadian NOC’s #OneTeam initiative. In collaboration with Egale Canada, the NOC signed a tripartite MoU on 2 December 2014, adopting measures to protect and support LGBTQ+ athletes, youth, and coaches in sport and schools.
