Yukon (Canada)

The Yukon Human Rights Commission claims that a Yukon law that requires a sex change operation before sex can be changed on birth certificates is discriminatory. Kelly Skookum, a Yukon mother of a transgender child, says her son’s birth certificate misidentifies him and raises problems for his daughter’s access to things such as summer camps. Jamie Skookum, 10, lives in Carmacks. He was born James and is anatomically male, but he thinks he is a female. The Yukon Legislature recently passed a motion that involved recognizing the rights of transgender people, but a bill will need to be brought forward before the Yukon Vital Statistics Act is amended to allow sex changes on birth certificates without a sex-change operation.
