Transgendered Ontarians struggling with jobs and equality at work – Helen Wolkowicz – Special to the Star

An estimated 20 per cent of transgender Ontarians surveyed are unemployed or on disability, while just over one-third are working full-time, according to a new Trans PULSE study, obtained exclusively by the Star, to be released on Monday.

Trans PULSE is a community-based research project investigating the social exclusion and discrimination on the health of trans people in Ontario. It is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
