One of several promises made by the minority Liberal government upon being sworn into parliament as cabinet ministers was to reintroduce a stronger bill against conversion therapy. As of November 30, they have delivered with Bill C-4. Per CP24, the new bill intends “to close some loopholes present in the last piece (Bill C-6) of legislation to tackle the issue.”
Conversion therapy is a practice that is defined as “any service, practice, or treatment designed to change a person’s sexual orientation to heterosexual, gender identity to one that matches the sex assigned at birth, or to repress or reduce non-heterosexual sexual attraction or sexual behaviours” per the Government of Canada’s website.
