Event description
Did you know Canada banned conversion therapy at the beginning of 2022?

About this event

Amendments to Canada's Criminal Code took effect on January 7th and include four new criminal offences banning conversion therapy and related conduct. What constitutes conversion therapy? How will the new law affect those providing and being subjected to conversion therapy?

Join us for a 90-minute webinar panel discussing the law. Moderated by the Centre for Public Legal Education Alberta (CPLEA), our insightful panelists will share about the political, legal, psycho-social, youth and lived experience perspectives.

We are pleased to announce our panelists:

  • Blake Desjarlais, Member of Parliament for Edmonton Griesbach
  • Emmet Michael, musician
  • Glynnis Lieb, Executive Director for the Institute for Sexual Minority Studies & Services (iSMSS), University of Alberta
  • Rin Lawrence, Chair of the Diversity, Equity, and Human Rights Committee and Chair of the Teacher Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA), Edmonton Public Teachers Local 37
  • Charles Easton, LGBTQ+ Lawyer

The Centre for Sexuality will also be on hand to provide mental health support to our panel and participants.
