Government of Canada moved to criminalize conversion therapy

On March 9th, the Government of Canada moved to criminalize conversion therapy to ensure that LGBTQ2 people in Canada can be who they truly are, and live full, healthy, and safe lives. #FreeToBeMe

“Conversion therapy is a cruel practice that can lead to life-long trauma, particularly for young people. The approach we are proposing today demonstrates our Government’s strong commitment to protecting the dignity and equality rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and two-spirit Canadians, by criminalizing a practice that discriminates against and harms them. If passed, this bill would make Canada’s laws on conversion therapy the most progressive and comprehensive in the world.”

The Honourable David Lametti, P.C., Q.C., M.P.
Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada
