Gender Inclusion: Acknowledging and Servicing Transgender, Non-Binary and LGBTQ2+ People.
It has never been more apparent than now that gender norms are changing, and these changes are here to stay.
The Statistics Canada, 2021 Census of Population questionnaire included for the first time a question on gender and the precision of “at birth” on the sex question, allowing cisgender, transgender and non-binary individuals to report their gender. Canada is the first country to collect and publish data on gender diversity from a national census.
