February 01, 2024 – To transgender girls and women across Canada, you belong in sport.  

We denounce the policy announced by Alberta Premier Danielle Smith to ban transgender girls and women from women’s sport in the province. 

  • This policy is not based on evidence.
  • This policy will significantly harm transgender girls and women.
  • This policy will not reduce the main barriers girls and women face in sport. 

Girls’ sport is for all girls. 

We will work with allies and leaders across the sport system to reverse this policy.

Sport, physical activity and recreation are life-enriching—and, at times, life-saving—experiences for people of all ages. 

Canadian Women & Sport has advocated for an equitable and inclusive sport system that empowers girls and women for the past 42 years. We believe that inclusion for women and girls includes trans women and girls. This position is rooted in Canada’s human rights legislation and in our core values.

As equal and valued members of our communities, transgender girls and women have the right to fully access and reap the benefits of sport. 

To transgender girls and women across Canada, you belong in sport.
