A major research project that surveyed Two Spirit, trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming communities to obtain useful data. The research was first done focusing on the province of Ontario in 2009 and 2010, and later done Canada-wide in 2019. Later research in 2020 focused on the Canada-wide impacts of COVID-19. The Ontario data can all be accessed through a series of e-bulletins and articles found here, and Canada wide data is currently being published through reports, infographics, and other formats here.
This research is one of the only needs assessments of Two Spirit, trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming access to justice in Canada. Its data focuses on the province of Ontario and was collected in 2016 and 2017. The final report can be found here.
