Transition Resources

Transition Resources

We’ve compiled this list of resources for individuals who are in the process of transitioning and are looking for resources to access various products and services. All of these resources are either available online, or in and around the Greater Toronto Area.

If you are looking for medical resources such as doctors and clinics, please visit this page. If you have questions about HRT or surgery, please visit this page.

Please note that this list is just a compilation of common resources that we receive questions about, and is by no means meant to suggest that an individual transitioning must utilize all (or any) of these services. While we’ve done our best to ensure the businesses below indicate trans-friendly services, Roots in Wellness does not endorse any of the products or services below; we are simply compiling a list of services and products that we are aware of in the area.

This list does not include medical transition items, such as HRT or surgery; these resources can be found using Rainbow Health Ontario’s Service Provider listing. The items below are more related to social transitioning.

If you have any additional resources that you’d like to share, please email jennifer@rootsinwellness.ca.
