Northwest Territories

The Northwest Territories’ gender-affirming care services are outlined in this policy: Healthcare for Transgender, Non-binary, and Gender-Non Conforming People: Guidelines for the NWT (2020). This is largely based on BC’s guidelines which are considered one of the most comprehensive in the country.

Hormone therapy can be prescribed in NWT without needing to see an endocrinologist. But, if your primary care practitioner isn’t able to take this on, it’s possible you will be referred to an out-of-province endocrinologist, usually in Alberta. NWT does not have capacity for gender-affirming surgeries, so people are referred to out of province clinics in Alberta, Ontario, or Quebec, depending on the procedure.
