Carea CHC

The Gender Care IPC team aims to create a safe, confidential, inclusive, and affirming space for trans, gender expansive, gender non-conforming, non-binary and questioning youth and adults in the Durham Region.

The Team includes a Nurse Practitioner and Systems Navigator who provide gender transition related care and services within a holistic framework for a time-limited length of service.

Specific services include social, legal and medical transition support, hormone related therapy, surgery referral support, advocacy, and health system navigation. We also offer support, education, and resources for families and caregivers of our clients.

We tailor our services to the needs and transition goals of our clients. Clients may retain their primary care providers while seeking gender transition related care from the team and upon completion of goals will be transferred back to their providers. Medical issues not related to gender transition will be directed back to primary care providers.

If you are interested in our services or would like to refer someone, please complete a Referral Form.

Please do not email confidential health information.  You can fax the completed form to our confidential medical fax at:  905-428-9151 or you can drop it off. Self-referrals are also accepted.
