The nondisclosure agreement (NDA) was officially revoked the day before Hockey Canada executives testified on July 27 before a parliamentary committee investigating the organization’s handling of the alleged assault. Hockey Canada president Scott Smith received questions from MPs about the NDA during the committee. In addition to the 2018 case, Hockey Canada has paid $8.9 million to 21 complainants since 1989. CBC News asked Hockey Canada if any complainants had come forward and asked for their nondisclosure agreement to be revoked since executives testified last month. Hockey Canada said since July 27, “no settlement complainant has requested a waiver of any confidentiality terms in their settlement agreements.”“As noted previously, Hockey Canada would work with victims if requested to support their wishes,” Hockey Canada said in a statement.
