OHF Screening Policy for the 2024-25 season

The centralization of all Vulnerable Sector Checks will be conducted by the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) through the OHF Screening Policy for all Team Officials and Team Personnel. This is in addition to screening of all On-Ice Officials that has been in place the past number of years. All Minor Hockey Associations will continue to screen Staff and Board members that are not involved in on-ice programming.

The following individuals who are associated with the OHF, Members, hockey leagues, hockey Clubs and/or Associations must adhere to the OHF Screening Policy and submit to the Ontario Hockey Federation:

  • Team officials (including but not limited to head coaches, assistant coaches, trainers, managers and at large team officials);
  • On-ice officials; and
  • Anyone else who, through their duties on behalf of the OHF, a Member, a hockey Club or Association, may work with children (included but not limited to on-ice volunteer, skills coaches, third party skills coaches and dressing room supervisors).

This process ensures that all screening is being done and reduces the number of screening where individuals are changing Associations or participating in multiple Associations. It adds to the safety of game to ensure players are not around vulnerable individuals.
