Toronto Teen Survey is a community-based research project led by Planned Parenthood Toronto that has gathered information on assets, gaps and barriers that currently exist in sexual health education and services for youth.

Between December 2006 and November 2009, Planned Parenthood Toronto collected over 1,200 surveys and spoke with 118 youth and 80 of their service providers. This sample is the largest community-based sample of its kind in Toronto, Canada’s most diverse urban centre. Through these surveys they found that:

• pregnancy rates are higher for LGBTQ youth than for heterosexual youth
• 50% of youth who identified as ‘questioning’ their sexual orientation are newcomers or
immigrants to Canada
• LGBTQ youth engage in riskier sex and higher rates of alcohol and drug use than
heterosexual youth
• LGBTQ and questioning youth still encounter problems when accessing sexual health
services
• LGBTQ issues are invisible in sexual health education in schools
