The GSN is brought to you by the Chilliwack Gender Care Committee with support from the Government of BC and the Sto:lo Nation. The Chilliwack Gender Care Committee is comprised of transgender individuals, a parent of two lgbtq children, and various service providers in the medical and mental health field. The committee is committed to promoting and providing trans competent, gender-affirming services in our community.

Their mission focuses on three goals:

1) Developing pathways of healthcare (medical and emotional wellbeing)

2) Developing support services (The Chilliwack Gender Support Network!)

3) Raising public education and awareness around trans health, human rights, and the inclusion and acceptance of people of all trans identities.
