Canada has introduced legislation to criminalise the traumatising and pseudoscientific practice of conversion therapy.

A bill was introduced on Monday, March 9, by the minister of justice and attorney general of Canada, David Lametti, and the minister of diversity and inclusion and youth, Bardish Chagger, which would finally criminalise conversion therapy.


The proposed amendments to the country’s criminal code include making it an offence to cause someone to undergo conversion therapy, to advertise or profit from conversion therapy and to remove a minor from Canada to undergo conversion therapy abroad.
