Rowan's Law: Mandatory for All Players and Coaches
Submitted By Katie Haasen on Tuesday, August 20, 2019
This is an urgent update regarding the legislative requirements under the implementation of Rowan’s Law by the Government of Ontario. 

** MANDATORY...PLEASE READ***


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), 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:
