The Ontario Government has enacted Rowan’s Law (Concussion Safety), 2018, S.O. 2018, c. 1 (“Act”). Ontario Regulation 161/19, the Act requires all sport organizations as defined in the Regulation (“Sports Organization”), which includes the Ontario Hockey Federation (“OHF”), to have a Concussion Code of Conduct. This Concussion Code of Conduct must require participants, as set out in the Act, to review the Ontario Government’s issued Concussion Awareness Resources on an annual basis.
A participant is subject to a Concussion Code of Conduct for each Sports Organization a participant registers with.
Applicable age appropriate Concussion Awareness Resources are located at www.ontario.ca/concussions.
The OHF Concussion Code of Conduct and the appropriate Concussion Awareness Resources must be reviewed before you can register/participate in the OHF.
You can review the OHF Concussion Code of Conduct here: OHF Concussion Code of Conduct
