On October 13, Hockey Canada also put new dressing room policy in place for the season which is meant to make the locker room more inclusive. The new policy requires minor hockey players to always wear their base layer in the dressing room, before or after being on the ice. If players under 18-years-old must use a washroom to do change into or out of their base layer: this policy was cited as a deterrent to bullying, harassment and body-shaming.
