Mandatory Gender Identity Training for Team Officials
Submitted By ALLIANCE Hockey on Thursday, July 5, 2018
Toronto, ON - The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) launched a new training module for team officials, to support trans-inclusive hockey in Ontario, Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression Training last season. 

Gender Identity Training

There are two modules which will educate team officials on this important topic. Team officials will not be approved on a team roster unless both modules have been completed.  *Once you have completed the course, you are considered trained i.e. it is not something you have to complete annually.

“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 2018-19 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.

Transgender Inclusiveness Training for Team Officials 

Team officials will be responsible for registering for the Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression and a Guide to the Dressing Room Policy and Confidentiality Statement modules. Upon registering for the clinic, team officials will receive an email with instructions for completing the modules.

Please make note of the following requirements before proceeding to registration.
