Rowan's Law - Mandatory Acknowledgement Form prior to Participation
Submitted By Cathy McNichol on Friday, August 30, 2019
This is an urgent update regarding the legislative requirements under the implementation of Rowan’s Law by the Government of Ontario.  

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. 

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

Please read the information below that pertains to the age of the player and than complete the OHF Rowans Law Acknowledgement Form. 
Players, parents/guardians are to submit the form to your team manager.

IT IS MANDATORY PRIOR TO ROSTERING THE PLAYERS ON A TEAM THAT EACH PLAYER'S (PARENT/GUARDIAN) PROVIDES A COMPLETED ACKNOWLEDGEMENT FORM.
