LGBTQ+ research using the CLSA platform

Thursday, June 1, 2023

For Pride Month, the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) celebrates participants, researchers, staff, and supporters who identify as 2SLGBTQ+ and who have contributed to the ongoing success of the CLSA as a national research platform on health and aging. The CLSA is an important scientific resource that can be used to address the health and well-being of individuals from midlife to older age who identify as 2SLGBTQ+.

As a longitudinal data and research platform, the CLSA is dedicated to integrating sex and gender into research through both study design and methods, including updating data collection tools to better reflect sex, gender identity and sexual orientation. The CLSA invites researchers to access CLSA data and to pose important questions about health and aging.
