Canada’s High Commission installs gender-neutral toilet to make all visitors feel comfortable


Canada House in Trafalgar Square is one of the most famous diplomatic outposts in the UK, home to Canada’s High Commission. The Commission staff reveals that installing the gender-neutral toilets to promote acceptance of transgender visitors. One of the advisers offered such an initiative to the Canadian PM after visiting London. The idea was born when Canadian MP Randy Boissonnault, who advises Mr Trudeau on LGBT issues, was in London to meet with LGBT activists. The spokesperson added: “As Canada engages with transgender activists on a regular basis, it made infinite sense for us to be able to offer suitable toilet facilities here at Canada House in order to ensure that all visitors to our building are welcomed and feel comfortable. A facility on our ground floor, accessible to both visitors and staff, is our new gender-neutral bathroom.” Gendered toilets remain available elsewhere, throughout the embassy.
