Church Guidance: Conversion Therapy

This document from the EFC, Canadian Council of Christian Charities, and the Christian Legal Fellowship offers guidance for churches on issues related to conversion therapy. It was jointly produced, and was released March 6, 2020.

Conversion therapy bans are being proposed or passed at all levels of government: municipal, provincial and now with Bill S-202 in the Senate also at the federal level. This document summarizes concerns with the bans and suggests wording for communicating with elected officials on this sensitive issue.

Update: The Federal Government announced legislation to ban conversion therapy on March 9, 2020. See
