TRANSforming JUSTICE’s 1st report: Legal Problems Facing Trans People in Ontario

TRANSforming JUSTICE Trans Legal Needs Assessment Ontario / TRANSformer la JUSTICE Évaluation des besoins juridiques trans en Ontario (TFJ) is a mixed-method legal needs-assessment/research study of trans people in Ontario.

HALCO is leading the project in partnership with faculty from the University of Toronto, Western University, and Ryerson University. The project goals are to:

  • assess the legal needs of trans people in Ontario
  • identify access to justice barriers
  • canvas the needs of legal service providers (lawyers and paralegals) in serving trans clients, and
  • make recommendations necessary to improve access to justice for trans people in Ontario.

TFJ is using “trans”as an umbrella term to refer to a diverse array of experiences and identities, including Two-Spirit, non-binary, agender, gender queer, cross dresser, transgender, transsexual, as well as those who identify as men or women but have a history that involves a gender transition.

While the project is focussed on the needs of the broader trans community, a specific component of the project is dedicated to trans people living with HIV.

The first TFJ report, released in September 2018, includes a summary of the project and key findings.
