The new IRCC Sex and Gender Client Identifier Policy has now been published. This policy is based on the Treasury Board Secretariat’s Policy Direction to Modernize the Government of Canada’s Sex and Gender Information Practices. The purpose of this policy is to set out how a client’s sex or gender information should be collected, recorded and displayed in the administration of IRCC programs, namely, immigration, citizenship and passport lines of business.
