Submitted By Brady Parr on Thursday, September 7, 2017
Toronto, ON - The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) is pleased to announce the launch of a new training module for team officials, to support trans-inclusive hockey in Ontario, Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression Training. 

There are two modules which will educate team officials on this important topic. For team officials already assigned to a team, completion of these modules will be a required by October 1, 2017. For team officials named within a month of or after October 1, they will have 30 days to complete both modules.

“The Ontario Hockey Federation is proud to be at the forefront of trans-inclusive sport and is glad to be working with Hockey Northwestern Ontario and Hockey Eastern Ontario through is process,” said Tony Foresi, OHF President.

This process started in 2013, when a complaint to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario was filed against Hockey Canada alleging discrimination in services based on gender identity.

Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression Training for Team Officials
The Ontario Hockey Federation, Hockey Eastern Ontario, and Hockey Northwestern Ontario are ready to roll out the Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression and a Guide to the Dressing Room Policy and Confidentiality Statement modules for all team officials, which is a mandatory requirement to be approved to a roster for the 2017-18 season.

All team officials will require an eHockey account in the Hockey Canada Registry (HCR) in order to register for and complete the two Modules. 

Once completed, notification will be posted to the team officials’ member profile on the HCR.

The first step in completing the training is to ensure all team officials have an eHockey account, in order to sign up for the required clinic. If you do not have an existing eHockey account, click here to create an account now.
