Rowan's Law - Mandatory Acknowledgement Form prior to Participation
Submitted By Tina Dawson on Friday, August 9, 2019
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's Law was named for Rowan Stringer,  a high school rugby player from Ottawa, who died in the spring of 2013 from a condition known as second impact syndrome (swelling of the brain caused by a subsequent injury that occurred before a previous injury healed).  Rowan is believed to have experienced three concussions over six days while playing rugby. 

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. OHF Rowan's Law Association Implementation, OHF Rowan’s Law Acknowledgement Form, OWHA Rowan's Law Acknowledgement Form, 10 and Under Concussion Awareness Resource, 11-14 Concussion Awareness Resource and 15 and Over Concussion Awareness Resource.  More specific information and details are in the attached letter “OHF Rowan’s Law Association Implementation”.
