Hamilton’s transgender protocol will impact city’s recreation facilities, says Councillor

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Hamilton politicians celebrated the unanimous approval of its new gender identity protocol that has been called the “cutting edge of best practice.” The protocol will allow individuals to have the right to access gender-segregated facilities based on their self-identified gender identity; allow individuals to be addressed by their preferred name and referred to by pronouns according to the individual’s self-identified gender identity; where possible the city will provide an all-gender, single stall washroom and change room facility; and training and education for all staff.
