New Mandatory Course for Volunteers
Submitted By jbroadbent on Tuesday, August 29, 2017
The Ontario Hockey Federation, Hockey Eastern Ontario, and Hockey Northwestern Ontario have rolled out the "Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression" and the "Guide to the Dressing Room Policy and Confidentiality Statement"  modules that form the Gender Identity and Expression Course for all team officials.

This is a mandatory requirement to be approved to a roster for the 2017-18 season. This includes all coaches, trainers, managers and on-ice help.



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.

Those who do not already have an eHockey account can paste the following link in their browser to sign up

https://ehockey.hockeycanada.ca/ehockey/Account/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fehockey%2f


Once your account has been established, or for those who already have an account, please paste the following link in your bowser to be directed to the OHF landing page for more information on the training and to course registration (no costs).

www.ohf.on.ca/view/ohfmainsite/team-officials/gender-identity-training

Team officials (once on landing page) will access the course registration via the link and then be responsible for registering for the Gender Identity and Expression Course. Upon registering for the clinic, team officials will receive an email with instructions for completing the modules.  

As stated, 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 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.

Questions related to the content of the modules can be directed to the OHF, [email protected]
