Ontario Hockey Federation Approves Changes to the Lake Ontario Region Regulations for the 2017-2018 season
Submitted By Melissa Wolk on Sunday, March 12, 2017
Various amendments to the Regulations governing the Lake Ontario Region (LOR) were approved at the Semi-Annual Meeting of the Members of the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) held in Toronto on March 4, 2017.  Amended regulations will be in effect for the 2017-2018 season. 

The Ontario Hockey Federation has implemented some new and exciting changes for the 2017-18 season. 

The amended Regulations align the concepts of community based programming and the Club-based system of free player movement, by encouraging younger players to participate and develop in their residential centres while offering older players the choice to play in either their residential centre or elsewhere in the LOR.

The Oakville Rangers Hockey club is committed to providing its membership with a best in class hockey experience and these changes will only serve to build on the positive changes we have already made to our programming.  

The new Regulations come into effect for the 2017-18 season, including the AAA, AA and A tryouts which will begin on April 10, 2017.


The LOR encompasses the whole of the GTHL (Toronto, Markham, Mississauga, and Vaughan) and the OMHA Associations/Centres (Oakville, Brampton, Richmond Hill, Markham, Ajax and Pickering). It has been in existence since the 1997-1998 season, to address the unique geographical area in and around the Greater Toronto Area.
