Learn about the Concussion Awareness Resources that amateur athletes, parents, coaches, team trainers and officials are required to review.The OHF Concussion Code of Conduct and the appropriate Concussion Awareness Resources must be reviewed before you can register/participate in the OHF.
Please review the appropriate age awareness document and return the signed acknowledgement form to PDMHA. All documents are attached at the bottom of this article.


The Ontario Hockey Federation was informed by the Ministry of Tourism Culture and Sport on June 18, 2019 that the Rowan’s Law Act and Regulations must be implemented by July 1, 2019. Therefore, after July 1, 2019 every Player, Team Official and On-Ice Official (parent as well if individual under 18) in order to register/participate must review the OHF Concussion Code of Conduct and the appropriate Concussion Awareness Resources.


On July 1st, 2019, Rowan's Law (Concussion Safety), 2018 came into effect. This new law makes it mandatory for sports organizations to do the following:
1. Ensure that athletes, parents of athletes under 18, coaches and officials confirm every year that they have reviewed Ontario's concussion awareness resources
2. Establish a removal-from-sport (RFS) and return-to-sport (RTS) protocol
3. Establish a concussion code of conduct that sets out rules of behaviour to support concussion prevention
The review of concussion awareness resources and concussion codes of conduct are expected to be in place by July 1, 2019. The rules for RFS and RTS are expected to be in place by July 1, 2020.
The Concussion Awareness Resource e-booklets are available below along with the Rowan's Law Acknowledgement Form
