Health Canada

As Canada’s federal health regulator, Health Canada is uniquely placed to collect data and conduct research on the health issues of LGBTQI2S+ Canadians. That’s why a Jagmeet-led government will:

  • Fund the collection of anonymized data to conduct research on the health care needs and experiences of LGBTQI2S+ folks, particularly trans and intersex individuals, to ensure provinces are able to improve access to and experience in their health care systems

  • Advocate for policy changes around non-medically necessary surgery at birth for babies born intersex to allow them to self-identify their gender at a later age
