Gender Identity and Gender Expression
Submitted By Lori Guthrie on Monday, July 10, 2017
The Ontario Hockey Federation, Hockey Eastern Ontario, and Hockey Canada 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.  We encourage all parents, grandparents, rink staff and anyone who is willing to participate in this free online e learning opportunity.  The time commitment is approximately 1.5 hours.  Let’s make sure our center, association and rink is a safe, inclusive, welcoming space!


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 copy the following link into your browser to sign up.

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
