Article: Outdated Sex Education in Canadian Schools

“Ontario now boasts the most dated sexual education curriculum in Canada, largely untouched since 1998. A coalition called on Premier Kathleen Wynne to shepherd sexual education into the 21st century.”

“But while Ontario is certainly the runt province when it comes to sex education, programs across the country aren’t that much more up to date. British Columbia’s program, for example, lacks any obvious guidelines for discussing oral sex, and only mentions sexual orientation and gender identity in the realms of stereotyping and discrimination. Same goes for Alberta. While Manitoba seems to be the most progressive of the lot, incorporating strategies for discussing oral sex and the so-called morning after pill, it still excludes meaningful policy on the topics of sexual orientation, online relationship, and gay sex. These are weighty omissions. Like it or not, kids are doing these things.”

How is this affecting today’s youth?
