Wheelchair Basketball Canada

Not an inclusive policy

 

Wheelchair Basketball Canada has a half-inclusive policy which is good for folks taking hormones, but is not inclusive of people not taking hormones or who are genderqueer. 

"The following guidelines will be used to determine the eligibility of Transgendered [sic]

individuals: 

 

a) Gender reassignment before puberty 

 

i. Individuals undergoing gender reassignment of male-to-female shall be regarded 

as female 

ii. Individuals undergoing gender reassignment of female-to-male shall be regarded 

as male 

 

b) Gender reassignment after puberty 

 

The following conditions will be used to determine the individual’s eligibility to 

compete: i. Male-to-female transgendered persons, to compete as a female, must submit 

documentation from a medical practitioner that gender reassignment has been 

ongoing for at least one year. 

ii. Female-to-male transgendered persons, to compete as a male, must submit 

documentation from a medical p

ractitioner that gender reassignment is ongoing. 

 

5. Any Transgender person who is not taking hormone treatment for gender reassignment 

purposes will be deemed their birth gender. "

 

NOTE: to make this policy more inclusive, trans people not taking hormones would go under review. If they are living as their true gender and that is different than what is listed on birth documents, we are limiting their ability to comfortably participate in the sport.
