TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
Whereas Two-Spirit, Transgender, Non-Binary, Gender-Diverse, and Intersex communities face significant challenges to accessing health care services that are friendly, competent, and affirming in Ontario;
Whereas everyone deserves access to health care, and they shouldn’t have to fight for it, shouldn’t have to wait for it, and should never receive less care or support because of who they are;
Whereas gender affirming care is life-saving care;
THEREFORE WE, the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to support MPP Kristyn Wong-Tam's Private Member’s Bill — The Gender Affirming Health Care Advisory Committee Act to improve access to and coverage for gender affirming health care in Ontario.
