Resource Toolkit on the Conversion Therapy Ban

Since the  Federal government banned conversion therapy through the passing of Bill C-4, Justice Canada provided funding for civil society organizations and service providers to create resources and provide public education about the ban, and its implications for survivors of conversion therapy.

Through funding provided by Justice Canada, Wisdom2Action–in collaboration with No Conversion Canada and with a Project Advisory Council that includes survivors of conversion practices, 2SLGBTQIA+ community members, legal experts and service providers–has created a resource toolkit comprised of practical guides that can be used in a variety of professional and interpersonal contexts.

About This Guide

This guide can be accessed by organizations and individuals looking to build capacity to address the implications of the conversion therapy ban, or looking to improve their own knowledge on the subject. 

*A note on language:

Note: we have chosen to refer to these practices as “conversion therapy” because this is a term people are likely to recognize and because this is the term used in Canadian law. However, we want to emphasize that “therapy” is an inaccurate descriptor. These practices are harmful pseudoscience with no genuine therapeutic value. Because of this, some organizations and individuals choose to use alternate language such as “conversion practices” or “sexual orientation and gender identity and expression change efforts” (SOGIECEs) to refer to conversion therapy.
