Some clinics in Vancouver with experience working with Trans folk:

VCH clinics have catchment areas that you have to live within in order to become a client of the clinic. Attached is a pdf file entitled ‘community-health-area.pdf’ which will give you a visual map of the borders of the catchment areas.

If you are a youth under 25 years of age, then you can access clinics in Vancouver as a youth, and not be restricted to the catchment area that you live within. Here are three clinics in Vancouver that we know to be more aware, friendly & competent when it comes to working with folk who are seeking Hormone Replacement Therapy. It is recommended that you contact the clinic before making a trip down to Vancouver, in order to verify this.
