Jayce Carver
"Transgender Issues in Treatment"


Jayce Carver is the co-founder and Executive Director of Windsor-Essex Transgender and Allied Support. Ms. Carver, along with a carefully chosen team of like-minded community activists, is working to enhance and sustain the health and well-being of transgender, gender queer, two spirited, gender non-binary, and gender questioning communities and their families. Through evidence-based activities, programs and services that create community on a platform of empowerment, Ms. Carver focuses on the provision of essential resources and advocacy work that recognizes and honours the important of peer-led programming. With a focus on human rights, Ms. Carver embraces, promotes and supports the diversity of a marginalized population. These contributions are bringing about a reduction in isolation of Trans individuals, creating community and visibility of Trans individuals, and providing tailored supports in our community from a person-centered perspective that relies on strong partnerships with other community agencies.
