Sports Concussions in Canada: Ontario’s Rowan’s Law

Subcommittee on Sports-Related Concussions in Canada – April 1, 2019:

In the first panel, two University of Toronto Ph.D. candidates offer their recommendations for where the government can assist on the prevention and management of concussions.

In the second panel, the committee hears from Gordon Stringer. His daughter, Rowan Stringer, died at the age of 17 after sustaining multiple head injuries during her time as a varsity rugby player. In 2018, Ontario passed a concussion safety bill called ‘Rowan’s Law’ in his daughter’s honour.
