Reports (2)
  • Status is not correct "non-binary gender isn't recognised in Nunavut. so correct status is "varies by region""
  • Status is not correct "Currently, the Canadian federal government recognizes “X” and all provinces and territories do as well except Nunavut. Nunavut does not recognize or allow anyone to change their sex designation to “X”. A status of “varies by region” would be much more appropriate.
