Rowan’s Law

Good day All-

The Ministry is asking for your assistance in helping to spread the word about the Rowan’s Law posting on the government’s Regulatory Registry, requesting input that will inform the development of  future regulations.

The government is very interested in our organization’s input, please take the time to provide your thoughts on possible regulations.

They are encouraging responses from athletes, parents, coaches and officials who are affiliated with your organization.

Many thanks for your continued assistance in helping to make sport safe in Ontario.

Rowan’s Law (Concussion Safety) 2018

… received Royal Assent on March 7, 2018. The Law is intended to transform the manner in which concussions are managed in amateur competitive sport in Ontario. The Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport has posted a survey on the Ontario Regulatory Registry to seek feedback that will inform development of future regulations. The survey will be posted until May 7, 2018. If you are an athlete, parent of an athlete, coach or official, or just interested in the issue of concussion awareness and management in sport, you are encouraged to provide your input on the questions listed in the following link:

In addition, if you are a “youth athlete”, we also encourage you to answer a few youth-specific questions about concussions in amateur competitive sport through the government’s youth-focussed website, YouthVoice at

If you have any questions about the Rowan’s Law initiative, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Make today great,
