The RPT, funded by Ontario Health East, is a coalition of community members and service providers working to improve Two Spirit, trans, non-binary, intersex, and gender diverse health in and around Ottawa.
The RPT has a Community Advisory Table (CAT), a space only open to Two Spirit, trans, non-binary, intersex, and/or community members! This table works to guide the work of the RPT and help us improve trans health and trans health services in and around Ottawa. There are also opportunities for the CAT to take on additional initiatives related to the advancement of trans health in the region (examples: developing toolkits, resources, etc).
We are currently looking for 3 new community members to join the CAT and help us improve trans health and trans health services in the region.
What you need to know…
Please fill out the application form below by Wednesday, November 15th to tell us a bit about yourself and why you’d like to join the CAT.
Once you submit your application, the RPT will review and the RPT’s system planner, Wisdom2Action will reach out to you regarding your application!
*Note: In the past, we have recruited for the CAT by requesting folks email us their expression of interest. This was done to keep the barriers to applying as low as possible. Recently, we have been receiving spam responses when taking this approach. While we recognize that an online form takes a bit more time on your end, the form helps us keep track of applications and ensure that your application doesn’t get lost amongst the spam! We’ve done our best to keep the form short and sweet, thank you for your understanding.
If you do have any questions or run into any challenges with the form, please reach out to the RPT at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Acknowledging the intersectional barriers and challenges faced within the health system, we particularly encourage applications from Francophone, Indigenous, racialized, and newcomer community members, people with disabilities, those living in rural and remote communities, and older adults.
