  4. Discussion paper: Toward a commission policy on gender identity

    October 1999 - Research and consultation conducted by Commission staff in preparation for this paper shows that transgendered people experience negative stereotypes that have a pervasive and often traumatic impact on virtually every aspect of their lives.

These are all issues that favour the development of a progressive policy to protect the human rights of transgendered persons within the legal framework of the Code.
