Services are available free of charge to all Two-Spirit, transgender and gender non-conforming people located in British Columbia, regardless of status.
Part 1 — Appointment Information
Legal summary advice means we will listen to you about your situation and let you know what we think you should do. We provide advice in many but not all areas of law. If we are not able to provide advice to you, we will refer you to another organization if possible.
Note we do not typically provide ongoing representation or advocacy, and you are responsible for meeting any deadlines related to your issue.
This appointment will connect you with one of our lawyers to help with identifiation (ID) related issues such as:
- changing your legal name
- changing your legal gender marker
- updating your health care, driver's license, passport, or other ID
- ask questions related to updating ID without necessarily making a change
At this time, we are not accepting more requests for ADHD assessments. We need more money to keep offering this program and help the people who are already waiting. If you already asked for an appointment, we will contact you as soon as we can schedule one.
If you want an ADHD assessment, you have a few options. You can pay $300 to Parhar for a private assessment. Or you can ask your doctor or nurse practitioner to refer you for an assessment, but be aware that there is a long wait list for this option.
Part 2 — Your Information
Please provide the name and pronouns you would like us to use for you. You can update this any time, and we will not ask for your legal name except when necessary to provide a service (like a legal name change).
