Trans and non-binary children and youth: a roadmap for improving services in Ontario

Rainbow Health Ontario (RHO), a program of Sherbourne Health, led a needs assessment to learn about ongoing concerns and challenges faced by trans and non-binary children and youth; their parents and caregivers; and their service providers. Evidently, significant barriers remain for these children and youth to have access to needed health care in a timely way, and to fully participate in their families, communities and broader society.

In this report, we review the current literature on trans and non-binary children and youth and share their perspectives, along with those of their caregivers, on their health and social needs. We also offer evidence for policy and service development in support of these populations, and provide cross-sectoral recommendations for public and community sector agencies to better address the needs of these youth and their families.

The executive summary of this report is available in French.
