Trans Vancouver Island

Welcome

to Trans Vancouver Island

A resource and information site for transgender and gender diverse people and their allies on Vancouver Island

I’ve been maintaining this site as a volunteer since 2012, when an applied local research project supported by Royal Roads University surfaced a community need for an island-specific resource directory. Please send suggestions for additional content or information updates to matthewheinz@ymail.com. I’m also glad to provide pro bono assistance in locating research, information, and resource referrals for Vancouver Island trans and gender diverse individuals and their families.
