HEO is announcing its new HEO Maltreatment, Bullying and Harassment Protection and Prevention Policy, which is fully aligned with Hockey Canada’s Maltreatment, Bullying and Harassment Protection and Prevention Policy approved by the HC Board in October of 2020. This new Policy complements the introduction of Hockey Canada’s Rule 11 for the 2021-22 season and HC’s associated national reporting system for incidents of discriminatory taunts, insults, and intimidation on the ice and outside of game play.
Hockey Canada and HEO strongly believe that these behaviours do not belong in or around the game of hockey, and HEO is committed to working with and supporting all of its sanctioned organizations to prevent and address inappropriate and unacceptable conduct.
This new HEO Policy 6.3 “HEO Maltreatment, Bullying and Harassment Protection and Prevention Policy” replaces the current HEO Policy 6.3 “Policy and Procedures for Risk, Safety and Conduct Management Hockey Eastern Ontario”. It also works with other HEO policies to address these behaviours in workplace, on- and off-ice settings
