Learn about the current state of Gender Affirming Care in Nova Scotia and the policy changes needed at gacns.ca, and if you live in the HRM, sign the petition to HRM Council to pass a resolution calling for the adoption of a new Gender Affirming Care policy.
"Members of the transgender, gender diverse, and intersex community (the Community) have been failed by our current system of gender affirming care (GAC) in Nova Scotia. Gatekeeping, limited coverage, inaccessible care, and long wait times have stopped people from getting the life-saving care that they need. While some supports and coverage exists for those seeking GAC in Nova Scotia, the current policy does not do nearly enough.
