Canada warns LGBTQ residents of the risks of traveling to the US due to some state laws

The Government of Canada is advising LGBTQ residents to exercise caution when travelling in the United States, given the potential impacts state laws may have on their rights and well-being. Different states have different laws, and some may be more restrictive towards LGBTQ people than laws in Canada. For example, some states allow discrimination against LGBTQ people in areas such as employment, housing and public accommodations. Similarly, some states have laws that provide fewer protections for LGBTQ people than those found in Canada. Canadian citizens should take care to understand the specific laws and regulations of the state they are travelling to before they arrive. This includes researching the laws and regulations in the specific state or city that they will be travelling to.
