Certification Requirement: Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression
Submitted By Deb Larsen on Thursday, July 13, 2017
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 that form the Gender Identity and Expression Course for all team officials, which is a mandatory requirement to be approved to a roster for the 2017-18 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. Those who do not already have an eHockey account can click the following link to sign up: https://ehockey.hockeycanada.ca/ehockey/account/login.aspx 

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