Conversion Therapy in Canada: The Roles and Responsibilities of Municipalities

Dr. Kristopher Wells, Canada Research Chair for the Public Understanding of Sexual and Gender Minority Youth, in partnership with conversion therapy survivors, and civil society organizations, are co-launching: “Conversion Therapy in Canada: The Roles and Responsibilities of Municipalities”

This report has been developed by leading experts, academics, persons with lived experience, and faith and community leaders to assist municipalities in better understanding their roles and responsibilities in taking action to protect LGBTQ2 people from conversion therapy within their local communities. It features the latest research and evidence on the state of conversion therapy in Canada and calls for municipalities to take legislative action to end this abusive practice. Everyone is valid, everyone deserves the freedom to be who they are.
