Female athletes received more than 55% of financial awards at Guelph, Nipissing and Ottawa; the men got 55% or more at Lakehead, Laurier, McMaster and Windsor.
"Ward Dilse, executive director of the OUA, said a committee that looks at financial awards will notify the violators and ask for an explanation. But because the collection of award data is still in its infancy, the association is focusing on education rather than sanctions for violators, he said. The OUA started collecting this type of data in 2003-04."(The CBC has a handy-dandy graph of how each school spent its money. Waterloo in 2008-09 gives about four times as much money to male athletes as their female counterparts, but isn't included, perhaps due to the makeup of the student body.)
The real question is how such data gets used. Do coaches get called on the carpet if not enough of their players are maintaining the 70% average necessary to get scholarship money?
There are a lot of deeper issues. All four schools which gave 55%-plus to male athletes either have football or in Lakehead's case, a men's hockey team but no women's team.
