Gender Identity and Expression
The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) is pleased to announce the launch of a new training module for team officials, to support trans-inclusive hockey in Ontario, Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression Training. 

This is for all team staff members and the directive for this is coming from the Human Rights Commission.

There are two modules which will educate team officials on this important topic. Once assigned to a team, team officials will have 30 days to complete both modules.

The course will take about two hours to complete. There is a 2-step process to access the online course:
1. If you don't already have one, create an eHockey account
2. Take the course using your eHockey credentials
Please go here for more information on this initiative.
