Support for Trans Employees: A Guide for Employees and Managers

Public Services and Procurement Canada
This resource provides guidance for employees and managers on how to provide a safe, respectful, and inclusive work environment for transgender and gender variant employees. These guidelines describe the roles and responsibilities of everyone included in the entire transition process, including deputy heads, managers, employees, unions, and human resources.

The guidelines list several considerations that should be deliberated in the process, which include privacy, dress codes, work assignments and duties, informing management and colleagues, and medical assistance. This resource also provides a comprehensive list of terms and definitions, a gender transition template for employees, as well as a sample letter to colleagues from a manger to the employees, and federal legislation related to transgender issues, and other resources.
