Canadian guidelines for sexual health education (2019)

The first Canadian guidelines for sexual health education was published in 1994 and was later revised in 2003. Both editions were developed with the expertise of professionals in various areas of sexual health, including education, public health, women's issues, health promotion, medicine, nursing, social work and psychology. The Guidelines are grounded on evidence-based research placed within a Canadian context. The 2008 edition is based on the 2003 edition. Comments from a national evaluation survey undertaken in 2007 and in put from external reviewers has been incorporated along with recent evidence-based literature. The 2008 edition has also been written in language that is more inclusive of Canada's diverse populations.
