Recently, governments across the country have been playing politics with trans people’s safety.
Policy makers in Saskatchewan and New Brunswick are trying to force education workers to out trans and questioning youth, putting them at increased risk for violence and isolation in their homes.
In September, Conservative Party of Canada convention delegates supported efforts to ban young people from accessing life-saving gender-affirming care, and to exclude trans women from women’s spaces.
Trans Day of Remembrance serves as a stark reminder of how much work we still must do. We are committed to continuing to make our workplaces, unions and communities safer for trans people.
