Marcel Dubroy of Smithers, B.C., faces five charges, including sexual assault and sexual exploitation.

The 68-year-old has been released from custody and is to appear in Regina court on July 17.

Police say Dubroy was coaching young athletes when he was interviewed by investigators in Smithers.

Gymnastics Canada said in a release in May that Dubroy was suspended because of the police investigation.

"Through a national reciprocity agreement, Mr. Dubroy’s membership is suspended nationwide and he may not coach in any provincially affiliated member club across Canada," it said.
