Concussion Awareness Procedures

"Preventing injuries will help you stay active throughout your life. Some injuries are easy to see and treat, but what about an injury inside your head? Brain injuries, such as concussions, don’t show on the outside and are not always obvious. Even though others can’t see your concussion, you will feel the effects and need the proper care to get better. The Rowan's Law resources will help you learn more about concussions, so you can stay active and safe." - Province of Ontario

The Government of Ontario's 'Rowan’s Law' requires the Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board (BHNCDSB) to confirm that:

  • Volunteers

have reviewed the applicable Rowan's Law Concussion Awareness Resource AND the applicable Board's Concussion Code of Conduct before there is entrance and/or participation in any BHNCDSB inter-school sport. The documents that must be reviewed are accessible online. If you require an alternate format, please contact your school office.


You must review the applicable item from each section (Rowan's Law and Code of Conduct) and submit acknowledgement of your review using the Form.
