Rowan's Law

Ontario is a national leader in concussion management and prevention. Effective July 1, 2019, sport organizations will be required to ensure that athletes, parents of athletes under 18, coaches and officials confirm every year that they have reviewed Ontario’s concussion awareness resources. As well, sport organizations must establish a concussion code of conduct that sets out rules of behaviour to support concussion prevention.

Hit. Stop. Sit.
