When Cory Annett decided to make her gender transition public at Nova Scotia Power, she worried how her employer would react.

"The first concern is, if I come out, am I still going to have a job?" Annett said recently. 

Annett had worked at Nova Scotia Power for nearly three years, but she was a contract employee.

"They could have decided that my contract was no longer viable, that I was no longer needed in my position and let me go," said Annett, "On the basis of being trans, but under the guise of something else."
