Concussion Safety

A concussion is a brain injury. It can’t be seen on X-rays, CT scans or MRIs. It may affect the way a person thinks, feels and acts.

Rowan’s Law

Rowan’s Law (Concussion Safety) and its associated regulation requires sport organizations, including municipalities, to establish a Concussion Code of Conduct, and requires participants under the age of 26 (and parents/caregivers of participants under the age of 18), staff and officials to review and sign-off on Ontario’s Concussion Awareness Resources for sports programs that have elements of competition.

For more information, please visit the Government of Ontario Rowan’s Law website.

City of Toronto’s mandate for Concussion Safety

The City of Toronto is dedicated to ensuring the safety of all individuals who participate in its programs and services.

Additionally, participants will need to sign-off on the review of associated Government of Ontario Concussion Awareness Resources.
