This website is amazing! I am a Masters student at Saint Mary’s University in Nova Scotia, studying Industrial and Organizational Psychology (essentially how to apply psychological principles in the workplace). I am writing a paper for one of my courses on discrimination against LGBTQ+ groups in the hiring process. In trying to find articles, I realized that this research is seriously lacking, and the academic knowledge on this topic is very limited. The TransPULSE project is so informative, and very necessary. You all are doing great work.

I am writing a Policy Brief as a school project for a Masters of Occupational Therapy, with the hope to better understand the barriers to accessing quality healthcare for the Trans population. I really appreciate having Canadian sources that are current and relevant. As a cis-gendered clinician-to-be, I am finding the Trans PULSE project really helpful and informative. Thank you!

Because there is a big lack of information elsewhere on governmental sites such as Statistics Canada, I’ve used your data to help me with a project aiming to identify the increased risk of violence in minorities, thus the transgender community, which then leads to an increased risk of suicide. I value the work this organisation does to inform the public about the multiple struggle transgender people face and ways to possibly better the health system for everyone.
