On July 11, 2018, Ontario’s new education minister Lisa Thompson announced that an outdated 1998 sex-ed curriculum would be reinstated in Ontario. A lot has changed in the last 20 years: how we talk about consent, respect for LGBTQ+ people and families, and what happens online, just to name a few examples.
Dozens of school boards in the province have already expressed their concern over the regression. Now we need your help to grow this list and build momentum.
Are you in Ontario? Contact your local school board below. If they’ve already taken a stand, let them know you support them and if they haven’t, let them know how vital the 2015 curriculum is. Ontario needs comprehensive sex-ed, it’s not a matter of opinion, it’s a matter of human rights!
