Martine

Her human rights case brought back public funding for Gender Reassignment Surgery in Ontario. The group she helped form; The Trans Health Lobby Group successfully lobbied for trans people’s right to change the gender on official identification documents without surgery. CUPE supported Martine in a number of ways throughout her human rights case (7 years). Martine and the Trans Lobby Group are now lobbying for Bill C279 for gender identity to be included in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Rock on Martine.
