Rowan's Law - Mandatory Acknowledgement Form Prior to Participation
Submitted By Stephanie Mason on Fri 09 06, 19
This is an URGENT update regarding the legislative requirements under the implementation of Rowan’s Law by the Government of Ontario.

Review of the Rowan's Law concussion safety documents and the signing of the acknowledgement form is mandatory before any player or team official can get on the ice this season. Please do so before your child's first ice time.



What is Rowan’s Law?
Rowan Stringer was a 17-year old Ottawa varsity rugby player who died from sustaining multiple concussions resulting in a catastrophic swelling of the brain – second impact syndrome.  On March 7, 2018, Ontario passed Rowan's Law (Concussion Safety), 2018 and related amendments to the Education Act. However, it is important to understand that this applies to all Sport Organizations, schools, programs and businesses in the province.  This is not a hockey ‘thing’ – it is legislation (Ontario Regulation 161/19) from the Government of Ontario.  

All Registrants registering July 1, 2019 or after must have completed the review information and acknowledgement prior to registration/participation.

All Team Officials currently registered will be required to complete the review of information and acknowledgement prior to August 30, 3019.  


All Registrants registered prior to July 1, 2019 must complete the review of information and acknowledgement prior to participation in the first game.  



Please read the information below on Rowan's Law and the legislative requirements:
