My name is Julie James. I am an Assistant Professor at Ryerson University in the School of Child and Youth Care. Four young trans people are co-leading this study with me. We would like to invite you to take part in our research study, which tries to understand how professionals such as doctors, nurses, school teachers, and social workers can be more supportive and provide better service to trans and gender non-conforming young people. The survey will likely take approximately 15 minutes to complete. 

This information will be made available online at, and will be used for public reports, in journal manuscripts, and to help inform service providers.

Some of the questions you will be asked include:
·       Please describe the training and information you have received about supporting trans, gender non-conforming, and/or gender diverse young people.
·       What do you need to better serve trans, gender non-conforming, and gender diverse youth?
·       How as your worked changed in the context of COVID-19?

For the purposes of this study, trans or gender non-conforming refers to people with a range of experiences and identities, including Two-Spirit, non-binary, agender, gender queer, gender non-conforming, gender diverse, gender questioning, transgender, as well as those who identify as men or women and have a history that involves a gender transition.

You are being asked to voluntarily complete this online survey. It involves questions about best practices and what service providers (such as nurses, doctors, teachers, and social workers) need to better serve young trans and gender non-conforming people. It should take about 15 minutes to complete. In order for all of your answers to be collected, you must go to the end of the survey and click the ‘submit survey’ button. This will demonstrate your full consent to participate.   

There is no direct benefit to you for taking part in this study. My hope is that the research will help develop practices for professionals that provide better care and service to young trans and gender non-conforming people. 

Some of the survey questions may make you uncomfortable, may remind you of negative experiences, or you may simply wish not to answer some questions. You are free to decline to answer any questions you do not wish to answer, or to stop participating at any time by closing your browser. If you close your browser before getting to the end of the survey, and do not confirm your consent to participate at the end of the survey by clicking the ‘done’ button, your information collected up to that point will not be used.    

The survey may appear in your browser history. In order to help protect your privacy, after you complete the survey, please erase your browser history.
