Report on Phase I & Plans for Phases II and III

Phase I of our research involved gathering a wide variety of perspectives on health and health issues  from trans people in Ontario. Overall, 89 participants took part in seven soundings held in summer 2006 in Toronto, Guelph, and Ottawa. These were trans-only spaces, facilitated by trans investigators from our research team. The soundings provided insight into the current health priorities of trans community members, the challenges confronted when trying to become or stay healthy, and some frequent barriers to accessing health care and social services.
