New Brunswick

New Brunswick has made significant progress in gender-affirming care since first offering coverage for surgeries in 2016.

To access hormone therapy, your primary health care provider must complete a hormone readiness assessment. They may refer to a psychologist for support with this process, but it is not required. A similar process is also required to access gender-affirming surgeries. Once the surgical readiness assessment is complete, your healthcare provider needs to submit a Prior Approval Request form to gain funding approval from New Brunswick Medicare. Most surgeries are referred out of province to the Clinique de Chirugie in Montreal, Quebec, in which case travel expenses are also insured.

See this resource on Medical Affirmation by Two-Spirit, Queer and Trans Pathways New Brunswick for all details regarding accessing care, including a contact list for gender-inclusive care providers, detailed coverage information, and required government forms.
