Gender Identity Training
Hockey Eastern Ontario (HEO), along with Hockey Northwestern Ontario (HNO) and the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF), is pleased to announce the launch of a new training program for team officials to support trans-inclusive hockey in Ontario, understand discrimination based on gender identity and provide gender expression training.
There are two courses which will educate team officials on this important topic - Understanding Discrimination based on
Gender Identity and Gender Expression and A Guide to the Dressing Room Policy and Confidentiality Statement.
This process started in 2013, when a complaint to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario was filed against Hockey Canada alleging discrimination in services based on gender identity.
“Hockey Eastern Ontario believes that this training is crucial in educating our Team Officials on the subject of Trans-inclusive sport and is proud to be working with Hockey Northwestern Ontario (HNO) and the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) on this endeavor” - Ron McRostie, HEO President.
