Submitted By webmaster on Thursday, July 13, 2017
The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) announces June 27, 2017 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.
