Rowan's law

With Rowan’s Law, passed into law in 2018, The Ontario Government has directed schools to focus on the importance of concussion awareness, concussion management and taking a personal pledge. Rowan’s Law makes it mandatory for sports organizations, school boards and health care providers to follow specific requirements following a suspected or confirmed concussion.

The last Wednesday in September is Rowan’s Law Day (#RowansLawDay) – a day to engage the general public, students, staff, coaches, athletes, as well as parents/guardians in activities that increase awareness about concussions and to share Rowan Stringer’s story. The tips, tools, and links to additional resources in the Toolkit linked below are designed to encourage and support your participation.
