Introduction & Context
On November 16th, 2022, Kristyn Wong-Tam, Member of Provincial Parliament for Toronto Centre, introduced the Gender Affirming Healthcare Act, in the Ontario Legislature. If passed, the bill will require the Ministry of Health to form an advisory committee to review the state of trans healthcare in Ontario, and make recommendations to the Minister of Health, for improving gender affirming care in Ontario.
Passing this bill is the first step to improving gender affirming care, and thereby improving the health and well-being of trans people, in Ontario.
We are calling on the Government of Ontario and all Ontario political parties to expedite Bill 42 and do their part to support trans people in our province.
