SKETCH will establish the formal administration and management for its Trans ID Clinic to provide confidential legal guidance to young people aged 16-29 in the Greater Toronto Area to make changes to their name and gender markers on government identification documents. The clinics will be run in conjunction with Pro Bono Students Canada with pro bono legal services provided courtesy of Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP. Intensive training for lawyers and law students regarding transgender identities and the law will be provided by lawyers from the Justice for Children and Youth specialty clinic with assistance from a trans Peer Trainer. Complete and accurate government identification allows trans individuals increased access to secure housing, employment, and healthcare.
