Toronto Teen Survey Bulletin

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 center. 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
