Nova Scotia – School Registry

School Registry
On March 8, 2019, it was reported that students in grade school would have the option to begin using ‘X’ as their gender in the near future (as reported so far, by the end of the month). Students through pre-primary to grade six will need parental consent; those in grades seven through 12 will not require parental consent.

Where there is a conflict between the parent and child, the “schools will make the decision that causes the least amount of harm to the child/youth.”
