Transgender Care

Trans Care BC works to make sure service providers in BC have up to date information, in order to provide the best possible gender-affirming care to trans individuals and their families.
Trans Care BC also aims to enable trans people to receive the majority of their care with a primary care provider, with referral to surgeons and specialists as needed.

In partnership with a client’s primary care provider, Trans Care BC can:
  • Support GPs and care teams with clinical consultation around the delivery of gender-affirming care including practice supports and resources.
  • Coordinate surgical readiness assessments with qualified assessors via a referral to the care coordination team.
  • Provide pre and post-surgical care coordination support for any client having surgery out-of-province or out-of-country.
  • Provide care planning support and coordination for clients experiencing barriers and challenges for chest surgery or challenges in the surgical readiness assessment process.
Trans Care BC also:
  • Supports clients, parents and caregivers to navigate available services in their local area and provide information for all stages of gender transition.
  • Develops and delivers education to improve service capacity closer to home.
