We’ve had a question from a student who’s looking for any demographic information pertaining to transgender / transsexual persons. We’ve found references to surveys conducted or ongoing in the US, but very little Canadian info.
I consulted several sources, and we do not collect that information at StatCan.
However, a few links that may be of potential interest:
2011 Census Consultations, Chapter 1 Demographic characteristics
2016 Census Program Consultation
Requirements for new data
