Taylor, C. & Peter, T., with McMinn, T.L., Elliott, T., Beldom, S., Ferry, A., Gross, Z., Paquin, S., & Schachter, K. (2011). Every class in every school: The first national climate survey on homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia in Canadian schools. Final report. Toronto, ON: Egale Canada Human Rights Trust.
This report discusses the results of a national survey of Canadian high school students undertaken in order to identify the forms and extent of their experiences of homophobic and transphobic incidents at school as well as measures being taken by schools to combat these common forms of bullying. The study involved surveying over 3700 students from across Canada through two methods between December 2007 and June 2009: individual online participation and in-school sessions conducted in twenty school boards in all regions of the country (with the exception of Québec where a parallel survey was conducted by Québec researchers). This report analyzes the data from both individual online participation and in-school sessions. In addition, participating boards will be provided with private reports comparing their own results to the results from all in-school sessions.
