Journey at Trans Health Klinic

Intake Process

Our Peer Support Worker is available for support or questions at any point along your journey: (204) 784-4016

Your journey may look different from the Intake Process below.

Transitioning Care Clinic

  • We provide care to gender diverse individuals 16 years of age and older seeking transitioning care (hormone start and surgery)
  • Once you reach your transition needs, we will transfer care to your primary care provider (family doctor or nurse practitioner). Your primary care provider will continue to prescribe and adjust your hormone therapy, and they can do this while you are seeing us for care as well
  • We DO NOT provide primary care, urgent care, or emergency care.
  • We require our clients to have a primary care provider, for example a Nurse Practitioner or Doctor.
  • If you do not have a primary care provider, please contact Family Doctor Finder:

Teaching Clinic

  • We will always ask your permission before you are seen by a health care learner. If you are uncomfortable with being seen by a student, please let us know. We will respect your decision.
  • If your primary care provider needs support and guidance in terms of hormone prescribing and primary care services (eg: pap test, prostate exam, chest exam, etc.), they can send an e-consult or letter to a trans health medical practitioner


Gender Affirming Procedures/Surgeries


Clients must pay up front for their transportation costs to Montreal. Keep receipts & plane tickets for reimbursement by Manitoba Health.


Referrals for surgeries

Please consider all the risks associated to the surgeries. We ask that you do your research about the surgeries before asking for a referral.

  • Please refer to the GRS Montreal website: about lower/bottom surgeries
  • Please speak with fellow trans community members about the results of the surgeries.
  • Please contact our Trans Peer Supporter if you need to be connected to trans community members

Manitoba Health requires a diagnosis of Gender Dysphoria (GD) for surgeries to be funded.

  • Manitoba Health requires 1 referral letter by one of Klinic’s providers that are on both approved provider lists for Health Professionals as well as Mental Health Professional to confirm GD.
  • Your medical practitioner may refer you to the psychologist if you are wanting a surgery referral
  • Your psychologist will perform an in-depth assessment for surgical readiness
  • Your referrals will be sent to the surgeon and Manitoba Health
