Alberta’s new transgender rules: From restricted treatments to pronouns and parental rights

 | 
01/31/2024
Alberta Premier Danielle Smith announced a new pronoun disclosure policy for schools on Wednesday, in addition to other restrictions on transgender treatments and sports. The pronoun policy announcement, which was hinted at in a radio broadcast last weekend, is likely to ignite debate in Alberta, as it did in Saskatchewan and New Brunswick. Alberta’s new policies go beyond recent moves in other provinces. In a seven-minute video posted to X on Wednesday afternoon, Smith said the province is banning medical treatments for some transgender minors, creating biological female-only sports leagues and will require parental consent to attend sexual education in schools.
