Study Recruitment


If you:

  • Are between ages 14 to 25
  • Identify as trans or non-binary
  • And live in Canada

Then we want to hear your voice.

Over 1,750 youth across the country participated in the Canadian Trans & Non-Binary Youth Health Survey. Now, we’re looking to youth to help shape a national report that will share the experiences of trans and non-binary youth.

There are seven youth advisory groups taking place across Canada. At SARAYVC, we’re recruiting for British Columbia and rural/territories. You will be among the first to see the results of the survey, share your perspective, and help create social change alongside other teens.

Interested? Here’s more info about the groups.

General Info

  • Groups will include approximately 6-8 youth
  • Each advisory group will meet 4 times during the 2019/2020 school year
  • Each group session will be approximately 2 hours
  • Each participant will receive an honourarium for every meeting they attend

British Columbia Group Info

  • The British Columbia youth advisory group will meet at the Burnaby Youth Hub on four Thursdays from 6 pm to 8 pm

Rural/Territories Group Info

  • The rural/territories youth advisory group will meet via Skype
