Rowan's Law - Concussion Protocol
Submitted By Cheryl Smith on Friday, August 23, 2019
Ontario is the first jurisdiction in Canada to pass concussion safety legislation, setting a precedent for sport legislation across the country. The Ontario government worked closely with key medical experts, athletes, coaches and sport leaders – most notably the members of the Rowan’s Law Advisory Committee – in establishing this first-of-its-kind legislation.

Starting this season, all participants will be required to review the issued Concussion Awareness Resources, sign the acknowledgment form and submit it to their respective minor hockey association.


Coaches or Managers will provide the required documents for all players to review prior to stepping on the ice for the first time this season.  The documents can be found here:

And all players are permitted to sign off on the Acknowledgement Form:
