Who We Are & What We Do
About 2SQTP-NB / P2SQT-NB
What does 2SQTP-NB/P2SQT-NB stand for?
2SQTP-NB stands for Two-Spirit, Queer, and Trans Pathways New Brunswick. P2SQT-NB is the French translation and stands for Pistes bispirituelles, queers et trans au Nouveau-Brunswick.
Pathways were chosen as our imagery to reflect the diverse care needs and desires of 2SLGBTQIAA+ folks and the multiple routes, journeys, and pathways that they may take to access their self-identified care needs and desires.
What is the 2SQTP-NB/P2SQT-NB training program?
The 2SQTP-NB/P2SQT-NB training has been designed for General Practitioners and Nurse Practitioners and consists of a self-directed education package and 30 hours of clinical mentorship and 10 hours of specialized mentorship (biweekly call). Our training program has been developed in consultation with Two-Spirit, Indigiqueer, trans, queer, and gender-diverse communities, and gender-affirming care providers throughout Wolastokuk, Peskotomuhkatik, and Mi'kma'ki, or what is currently called New Brunswick. By the project's conclusion, 2SQTP-NB/P2SQT-NB aims to have 7 primary health care providers trained and actively providing gender-affirming, culturally focused care to Two-Spirit, Indigiqueer, trans, and gender-diverse individuals across the province.
Our mission is to make gender-affirming health care equitably accessible and culturally appropriate for folks living in New Brunswick.
Our vision is a Wolastokuk, Peskotomuhkatik, and Mi'kma'ki--what is currently called New Brunswick--that is inclusive, accepting, and empowering to Two-Spirit, Indigiqueer, trans, and gender-diverse individuals. We hope to achieve this through collaborative and community-led knowledge creation and delivery for primary care providers and 2SLGBTQIAA+ communities more broadly.
