The Canadian Trans Youth Health Survey was a national online survey conducted by researchers from several Canadian universities and community organizations. This report is focused specifically on trans youth who live in Alberta, who made up 12% of the total respondents nation-wide. The survey included somewhat different questions for younger (14-18 years) and older (19-25 years) trans youth about a wide range of life experiences and behaviours that influence young people’s health. This provincial report is a detailed snapshot of the larger national survey results.
