Just The Facts: Ontario’s Sex Ed Curriculum

  • Hart House, Debates Room (2nd floor) 7 Hart House Circle Toronto, ON, M5S 3H3 Canada (map)

Ontario’s provincial government is currently in the midst of building a new Health and Physical Education curriculum, which includes subjects such as mental health, sexual health education and the legalization of cannabis. This move has resulted in a widespread, vocal public response, and has prompted the province to invite public input through a consultation – which is open until 15th December.

Come out to attend our expert panel, moderated discussion and Q&A for just the facts: what are the differences between the old and new Ontario Sex Ed curricula?

Our panelists include:

  • Dr. Sarah Flicker - Assistant Professor, Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University

  • Dr. Lauren Bialystok - Assistant Professor, Department of Social Justice Education, University of Toronto

  • Dr. David Brennan - Associate Professor, Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto

Moderated by CityNews reported Maleeha Shaikh.

This event is being hosted in partnership with the Toronto Science Policy Network (TSPN), with support from the University of Toronto’s Student Initiative Fund.
