Sabrina's Law

On May 16, 2005 the Ontario Legislature unanimously passed Bill 3 -- a private member's Bill which requires school boards to have policies that include:

* training for school staff on dealing with life-threatening allergies on a regular basis
* creating individual plans for students who have anaphylaxis allergy
* having emergency procedures in place for anaphylactic pupils

This law took effect on January 1, 2006.
