Rowan's Law - Mandatory Acknowledgement Form prior to Participation

This is an urgent update regarding the legislative requirements under the implementation of Rowan’s Law by the Government of Ontario. 

OHF has asked to forward this important information to all OMHA Center Mailing to all our Association and League contacts.  


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.   Attached to this email are the documents included in the OMHA centre mailing links found in the email below.
