Daria (Dasha) Peregoudova

Dasha Peregoudova, an associate and member of the firm’s Litigation & Dispute Resolution, Workplace Law and Sports, Media & Entertainment Groups, has been named the Director of Sanctions and Outcomes for Abuse-Free Sport, Canada’s new independent safe sport mechanism. This program is intended to prevent and address maltreatment in sport.

In this newly developed role, Dasha will be responsible for defending the interests of safe sport. Fully independent and reporting to the Maltreatment in Sport Sanctions Council, she has complete authority to impose sanctions on participants of organizations that have signed on to the Abuse-Free Sport program. The Council is accountable to the Canadian sport community to address discipline and sanctions when maltreatment in sport occurs and to make resourcing recommendations for the Abuse-Free Sport program.

Dasha is a former Canadian national team athlete in taekwondo, and a longtime advocate and trusted advisor to both athletes and sports organizations. She has held various positions in sport, including serving as President of AthletesCAN and, most recently, as Ombudsperson for Team Canada at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
