In 2010, Alberta Health and Wellness agreed to pay for up to 20 sexual reassignment surgeries per year until 2015.  The news came as a welcome surprise to some members of the Alberta trans community who received government letters informing them of the program and the criteria that must be met in order to qualify. Diane Gall, a male-to-female transsexual in Medicine Hat, has been waiting since April 2009 to find out if the government will pay for her surgery.
