“We are very pleased to announce another group of clubs who have met the Standards for Quality Soccer as well as those who have achieved a higher category of recognition,” said Dave Nutt, Canada Soccer’s Director of Development in their official announcement. “These organizations are making a commitment to providing safe, fun, accessible and inclusive, and developmentally appropriate programming, which are the principles that underpin the Canada Soccer National Youth Club Licensing Program. Canada Soccer would like to thank our Member Associations for their support in implementing the Club Licensing Program as well as the clubs for their hard work in raising the standards of soccer in Canada as well as the clubs for their hard work in raising the standards of soccer in Canada.” 

Quality Soccer Provider (QSP) is the entry-level category in Canada Soccer’s Club Licensing Program. To attain the designation of a QSP member, organizations must create an environment that is developmentally suitable, safe, enjoyable, easily accessible, inclusive, and inviting for players and families, which sets their programs apart from non-affiliated soccer activities and informal play. Furthermore, QSPs are obligated to maintain good standing with their governing bodies and adhere to the criteria set forth for membership. 

As of this year, the QSP designation is a mandatory component of membership with Canada Soccer. Its purpose is to guarantee that all member organization Clubs adhere to the standards outlined in Canada Soccer's Safe Sport Roster. This roster received unanimous approval at the 2019 Canada Soccer Annual Meeting of the Members.
