International Transgender Day of Remembrance

Tuesday, Nov. 20 is the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, an annual observance that honours the memory of those whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence.

Throughout the week, we have poster boards on display at our sites that provide information on how to be an ally to a transgender person, how to provide quality healthcare to a transgender person and how to support a colleague who is transgender or transitioning their gender.

Niagara Health has a committee that meets regularly to ensure policies and processes are supportive of people who are transgender, and also to address any questions or concerns that arise with a goal of improving experiences for transgender people who receive care at Niagara Health.
