At this time, the Ontario Hockey Federation will NOT be moving forward with the new Hockey Canada Dressing Room Policy announced last week.
The OHF, along with Hockey Northwestern Ontario (HNO) and Hockey Eastern Ontario (HEO) will maintain the existing Dressing Room Policy from the 2016 Ontario Human Rights Mediation.
Should a future transition be made by the OHF to the Hockey Canada Policy, the requirements will be addressed between the two policies with adequate notice to be announced ensuring all changes are made with due diligence.
As previously mentioned, the OHF will be hosting three (3) Education Sessions on Gender Inclusion in Hockey including a presentation on the OHF Dressing Room Policy.
