Download Sex-Ed & Gender Identity Theory Exemption Form
No to gender identity theory in Canadian schools!
PAFE is launching a campaign to rid Canadian schools of unscientific gender identity theory!!!
We're calling it "No to gender identity theory," or the "No GIT" campaign, for short.
What is the NO GIT campaign?
PAFE is encouraging concerned Canadians to push back against gender identity theory in whatever form it enters our schools (in the curriculum, school events, assemblies, etc.), and against the board and provincial policy measures that are ultimately responsible for it. We will be lobbying schools, school board officials and politicians to remove it from the curriculum.
PAFE's NO GIT campaign BEGINS at the school level with an exemption form that allows parents to exercise their natural right over their children's education.
The campaign began in Ontario, as a response to the comprehensive sex-ed program brought out by Premier Kathleen Wynne and continued under Premier Doug Ford.
The Ford government alleges it guarantees parents the ability to opt out of the elementary Health and Physical Education curriculum in a policy document known as PPM 162. To ensure this, they have mandated that parents receive notice of when the classes are to begin and the content of the course. We know this opt-out is useless, and some parents are complaining about how ineffective it is.
PAFE received many complaints from parents across Ontario that their children have been exposed to sex-ed and gender identity instruction at an earlier age than is prescribed in the sex-ed curriculum, in classes other than sex-ed, or in the form of school assemblies and/or other events such as library readings--none of which are covered by the government's opt-out. We repeat—it's a sham, it's ineffective.
And that's just for elementary school.
What about high-schoolers? The Ford government allows ZERO opt-out or notification for grades 9-12. So if you don't like gender identity theory being taught to your high schooler, too bad—the government forces it on high school students.
PAFE's exemption form addresses all of these concerns. It demands notification and opt-out from:
- high-school sex ed, not just elementary
- all gender identity instruction whenever, wherever taught in school
- all school events that teach gender identity theory
Then parents from across the country began to request similar forms for their provinces.
Today PAFE’s form can be used in any English-speaking or French-speaking school in Canada.
What can we do?
All Grades, All Students Exemption Form
The form has check boxes if you want to exempt your child from sex-ed, instruction in gender identity theory, or any school event in which sexual health or gender identity theory is taught—or all three!

Give a copy of the exemption form to your children's teacher(s) and ask the school principal to place it in the student's permanent record (in Ontario it's called the Ontario Student Record, or OSR).
To make this successful, we need everyone's help to make parents aware of the form!
