Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
8
November 2008
Whereas: 
  1. The CCR adopted a resolution in November 1994 in regard to education and guidelines on sexual orientation for the IRB;
  2. The 1994 resolution does not address specific training with the IRB in regard to trans communities, nor does it recognize education and training for CIC and CBSA employees;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR:

  1. Ensure from now on that all CCR policies regarding sexual orientation reflect the diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transexual, queer, questioning and intersex communities;
  2. Advocate with the IRB, CIC and CBSA to include education and training on trans specific, transphobia and homophobia issues.
