Sexual Health Information for Educators

The Canadian Guidelines on Sexual Health Education state that sexual health education is a broadly based, community-supported process that requires the full participation of educational, medical, public health, social welfare, and legal institutions in our society. Effective sexual health education maintains an open and nondiscriminatory dialogue that respects individual beliefs. It is sensitive to the diverse needs of individuals irrespective of their age, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, physical/cognitive abilities, and religious background.
