Several public schools in Ottawa will be installing gender neutral bathrooms to help protect children who are questioning their gender identity.

Known as “universal” bathrooms, the Ottawa Carleton District Public School Board says the single unit bathrooms will be in schools where the parents of children who may be transitioning from one gender have brought up the issue to officials.

“We’re proud of it. It’s work that can be done, that needs to be done and we are trying to keep pace with our communities,” said Mike Carson, the board’s superintendent of facilities.

Parents and their children who are questioning their gender identity have welcomed the announcement.
