It’s time for better Sexual Health Education for all students in BC.

Only recently has BC’s school curriculum and culture evolved to include a greater awareness of marginalized groups such as LGBTQ2 youth. But, that awareness hasn’t translated into inclusion of marginalized groups in BC’s sexual health education.

BC’s sexual health education curriculum is vague in it’s wording and flexible in it’s scope. Coupled with a lack of funding, resources, and sex education training for teachers, we’ve created a “hit or miss” culture when it comes to marginalized groups & sexual health education in BC.

All students, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or ability have the right to learn what they need in order to make safer, informed choices. Likewise, the education and information students receive must also reflect that diversity.

It’s time for better Sexual Health Education for all students in BC.

We call on local school boards, BC’s provincial government & Canada’s federal government to implement policies that:

  • Formalize implicit inclusion of marginalized groups, including LGBTQ2 youth, in BC’s sexual health education curriculum.
  • Increase sexual health education funding, resources, and training for teachers in BC.
