Canada Soccer has announced December 2022 updates to 150 clubs as part of its Club Licensing Program. The program is designed to guide member organizations throughout the country toward best principles for organizational development both on and off the field. The Quality Service Providers (QSP) is the entry-level category in Canada Soccer’s Club Licensing Program.

In order to qualify as a QSP, member organizations must provide a developmentally appropriate, safe, enjoyable, accessible, inclusive and welcoming playing environment for their participants, which differentiates it from non-member soccer and unorganized play. QSPs must also be in good standing with their governing organization(s) and meet the expectations of membership.

“We are pleased to announce that these clubs have committed to the standards of the Canada Soccer National Youth Club Licensing Program and have been able to accomplish the requirements of the categories that they have achieved in spite of the challenges of a global pandemic,” said Jason deVos, Canada Soccer’s Director of Development. “The Club Licensing Program exists to raise the level of soccer in this country and ensure a safe, welcoming, and developmentally-appropriate soccer environment for all participants in support of the Canada Soccer Safe Sport Roster.”

Of note, the Quality Soccer Provider designation will become a requirement of membership starting in 2023 to ensure that all member organization clubs meet the standards required to fulfill the requirements of Canada Soccer’s Safe Sport Roster which was unanimously adopted at the 2019 Canada Soccer Annual Meeting of the Members.
