Justice Canada tapped Carleton University, Québec Trans Health Action researchers to author report
The Department of Justice Canada has recently released a research report uncovering serious legal problems faced by numerous LGBTQ2+ individuals across Canada.
“A Qualitative Look at Serious Legal Problems: Trans, Two-Spirit, and Non-Binary People in Canada” examines the extent and effects of legal problems experienced particularly by transgender, two-spirit, and non-binary people for the last three years. These legal problems pertain to all conflicts, barriers, or negative interactions they have experienced due to a legal or administrative system or from contact with state institutions, officers, and agents.
The report consists of semi-structured interviews with 27 transgender, two-spirit, and non-binary people recruited across Canada. Justice Canada tapped William Hébert of Carleton University, Nora Butler Burke, Tara Santini and Daphne Barile of Québec Trans Health Action, and Frank Suerich-Gulick to write the report. The Community-Based Research Centre supported them.
