Information from Justice for Children and Youth (JFCY): The Ford government recently announced they are going to repeal the current 2015 Sex Ed Curriculum and replace it with the 1998 Sex Ed Curriculum. This change means that sexual orientation, gender identity, same-sex marriage, consent, invisible differences (such as disability) and safe social media use will not be taught to students in Ontario under the curriculum. In addition to putting students at risk of harm, this decision by the Ford government is discriminatory.
Justice for Children and Youth (JFCY) and the HIV & AIDS Legal Clinic Ontario (HALCO) are organizing to represent Applicants who wish to come forward and file Applications to the HRTO. JFCY and HALCO areÂ freeÂ legal clinics that represent clientsÂ at no charge. If you believe that the roll-back of the 2015 Sex Ed Curriculum violates your human rights, please contact Andrea Luey or Claire Millgate at Justice for Children and Youth (416.920.1633) for legal advice.
