The OMHA, in its ongoing commitment to being leaders in safety and inclusivity, is offering an on-demand learning module to all Team Officials with information on the new Hockey Canada Maltreatment rules.
Adopted for the 2021-2022 season “Section 11- Maltreatment” includes all forms of maltreatment under a single section of the rulebook. It provides guidelines for escalating penalties based on the severity of the behaviour from players as well as team officials. Click here to view the Hockey Canada Rulebook.
“The addition of Section 11 to the Hockey Canada Rulebook is a major step towards making the game more inclusive for all, but the reporting system will allow Hockey Canada and its 13 Members to proactively implement change through education and create a better understanding of where issues are occurring,” said Scott Smith, President and Chief Operating Officer of Hockey Canada. “As we continue to learn and help foster an environment that is diverse, inclusive and safe, we believe the updated playing rule will greatly benefit all participants and allow more young children and adults to enjoy the game.”
