Green MLA calls on government to remove fees for name, gender change for transitioning Islanders”

Kudos to Green MLA Lynne Lund for highlighting the cost and complexity of officially changing name and gender designation on PEI.

When government removes these fees, streamlines the paperwork, and removes the requirement for a doctor sign-off, it will be a small but significant step toward embracing trans and non-binary Islanders.

There’s no better time to get this done than right now, during Transgender Awareness Week.
