Improving Access to Sexual and Reproductive Health Care for Two-Spirit, Trans and Non-Binary People in Canada


November 2022

Budget 2021 committed $45 million over three years, starting in 2021-22, to improve access to a full range of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care support, information, and services for people in Canada who face the greatest barriers to access. Health Canada's SRH Fund was created to support a wide range of evidence-informed and innovative projects for people in Canada who are at increased risk for poorer SRH outcomes, such as members of 2SLGBTQI+ communities, Indigenous and racialized people, women and youth.

From this Fund, Health Canada is investing more than $3.8 million in a project led by Trans Care BC.

Gender-affirming sexual and reproductive health resources for health care providers and Two-Spirit, trans and non-binary (TTNB) Canadians Trans Care BC
Funding: $3,825,393 until March 2024

Trans Care BC's mandate is to enhance and coordinate trans health services and supports across British Columbia so people of all genders can live, work, and thrive in their communities. Through this initiative, Trans Care BC will address barriers to sexual and reproductive health care encountered by TTNB people by developing educational resources for health care providers and community members. This project will create innovative and intersectional online training modules with accompanying practice tools and client resources in three key areas:

  • sexual health promotion and harm reduction;
  • sexual desire, function, fertility and perinatal care; and
  • gender-affirming post-operative care.
