Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression Training for Team Officials
“The Ontario Hockey Federation, Hockey Eastern Ontario, and Hockey Northwestern Ontario are now implementing the “Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression and a Guide to the Dressing Room Policy and confidentiality statement modules that form the Gender Identity and Expression course for all team officials, which is a mandatory requirement to be approved to a roster for the 2017-2018 season.”
ALL team officials will require an eHockey account in the Hockey Canada Registry (HCR) which means if you are already in our data base you are able to register and complete the two modules. Once completed, notification will be posted to your Hockey Canada profile. If you are not in the data base please contact Cheryle Hinder ([email protected]) as she will have to set up a profile for you.
Please click on the link below to be directed to the OHF landing page for more information on the training and course registration (it will be free). Team officials once on the landing page will access the course registration via the link and then be responsible for registering for the “GENDER IDENTITY AND EXPRESSION COURSE.” Upon registering for the clinic, team officials will have received an email with instructions for completing the modules.
GENDER CLINIC: https://register.hockeycanada.ca/clinic-details/1ebd5c4e-0ba7-69f4-8e39-069e8da93d8e
The clinic will take about one and half hours as it has two-forty minute modules. ALL BENCH STAFF AND ON-ICE VOLUNTEERS NEED TO DO THIS ASAP as your team will not be able to rostered until everyone has done this.
*YOU CANNOT DO THIS ON A PHONE OR IPAD, IT MUST BE DONE ON A MAC/PC DESKTOP COMPUTER. *
