BC Supreme Court Ruling

Recently, the Supreme Court of British Columbia issued a ruling pertaining to a trans-identified youth. The ruling was individual in nature and may be appealed. At the present time, we are refraining from making any adjustments to the site given that it was an individual ruling. However, the ruling is of importance, as it granted the youth the right to change their name without parental consent, to make medical decisions related to their transition without parental consent (as they had the capacity to consent), and went further to say that misgendering or misnaming of the youth would be considered family violence within the context of the BC Family Law Act.

We will be following this case closely as it develops.
