The gender affirmation surgery clientele of the Centre Métropolitain de Chirurgie (CMC), is more than 90% Canadian.
On average over the last 3 years, 26% are from Quebec, 35% from Ontario, 26% from the western provinces, and 6% from the Maritimes.
The other patients (7%) who benefit from Quebec’s expertise come from Europe, Australia, and the United States.
The high percentage of Canadian patients reflects that in Quebec, as well as in other Canadian provinces, government programs cover almost 100% of the costs for most types of gender affirmation surgery and for the requisite medications.
“Because of superior accessibility, better timelines, and the expertise of GrS Montréal, we welcome many French and American citizens who are wishing to go through trans surgery,” explains Henri Labelle, social worker and psychotherapist.
