NEW Maltreatment & Discrimination Playing Rule

Hockey Manitoba would like to remind our Regions, Minor Hockey Associations, and Leagues about the new maltreatment and discrimination playing rule for the 2021 - 2022 season that focuses on recognizing and reporting incidents of maltreatment and discrimination.

As part of the new rules, certain infractions will include an indefinite suspension pending a hearing with Hockey Manitoba, as well mandatory hearings for repeat offenders.  To read Section 11, beginning on page 142 of the Hockey Canada Rulebook in its entirety, please CLICK HERE.

All incidents in which a Section 11.4 - Maltreatment and Discrimination call is made need to be immediately reported to Hockey Manitoba using the Complaint Intake Form.

In a further effort to eradicate discrimination of all forms from the game, Hockey Canada and its 13 Members also approved a new national reporting system for incidents of discriminatory taunts, insults, or intimidation, both on the ice and outside of game play.

The new rule and reporting system includes, but is not limited to, discrimination based on race, ethnic origin, skin colour, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability.

The national reporting system will allow Hockey Canada and its 13 Members to have a better understanding of where maltreatment and discrimination incidents occur and their frequency, and will allow the organization to take progressive steps to eliminating incidents through action and education.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the new maltreatment and discrimination playing rule, please contact Hockey Manitoba Executive Director Peter Woods at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
