Hamilton Trans Health Coalition

We are a non-profit coalition of health care providers, advocates, and community members working to increase the capacity of health systems in Hamilton, Ontario to meet the needs of trans, gender-diverse, and non-binary people.

We invite you to learn more, support our work, join us, provide gender-affirming care, expand gender-affirming care in your practice or organization, and advocate for access to gender-affirming care in your community.
