About the Chilliwack Gender Care Committee

The GSN is brought to you by the Chilliwack Gender Care Committee with support from the Government of BC and the Sto:lo Nation. The Chilliwack Gender Care Committee is comprised of transgender individuals, parents of LGBTQ2IA children, partners and family of trans individuals, and various service providers in the medical and mental health field. The committee is committed to promoting and providing trans competent, gender-affirming services in our community.

Our mission is to empower transgender & gender diverse children, youth, and adults and their families, to live life fully surrounded by the support of those who have come before them, lifted by timely and adequate resources when needed, strengthened through education and protected fully by law.

We strive for equity, removing as many barriers as possible to assist trans people to reach their goals, and live a happy and healthy life.
