Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport


The Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport has been developed to ensure that athletes with a suspected concussion receive timely and appropriate care, and proper management to allow them to return to their sport.



Developed by Parachute and its Expert Advisory Concussion Subcommittee, the Guideline is based on a review of the current scientific evidence and expert consensus on best practices for the evaluation and management of Canadian athletes who sustain a concussion during a sport activity.

This Guideline addresses 7 key areas:

  1. Pre-season education
  2. Head injury recognition
  3. Onsite medical assessment
  4. Medical assessment
  5. Concussion management
  6. Multidisciplinary concussion care
  7. Return to sport

Funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada, this Guideline is an important part of the Parachute-led Concussion Protocol Harmonization Project and creates the foundation for a more consistent approach to concussion across the country.

Who should use this Guideline?

This Guideline is intended for use by all stakeholders who interact with athletes inside and outside the context of school and non-school based organized sports activity, including athletes, parents, coaches, officials, teachers, trainers, and licensed healthcare professionals.

The Guideline is free to download and use. Below are links to view or download the Guideline as a whole or in sections. There are also links to the individual documents and tools.
