The Gender Variance Program is a clinic divided into Pediatric and Adult components. The Pediatric GVP provides healthcare and support for youth with gender variance and their families. The Adult GVP provides medical and psychosocial support for individuals 19+.
This program provides highly individualised healthcare, assistance, support for patients with gender variance. We also provide referrals to appropriate community resources for youth with gender variance and their families when necessary or appropriate. These services are for patients with gender non-conformity, and these youth may be trans, gender fluid, nonbinary/androgynous, or questioning their gender role or expression. Psychosocial suppport, including parent/caregiver information groups, is also an important element of the team’s services.
Parent information session/Support groups (FREE): We offer parent information sessions (in group format). Information sessions are intended to support and equip parents (and/or other family members) who have a child with variance of gender expression or identity. Email us at email@example.com and we will contact you as soon as a date for the next session is selected.
This program provides highly individualised medical and psychosocial support for individuals 19+ who have questions about gender transition, who are in the process of transitioning, or who have completed transition and require non-judgmental healthcare.
