May 17, 2022 - Ottawa, ON - Women and Gender Equality Canada

Every Canadian deserves to fully participate in all spheres of society, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation. Through its programs and policies, the Government of Canada is committed to protecting LGBTQ2 equality and continuing to address systemic discrimination.

Today, the Honourable Marci Ien, Minister for Women and Gender Equality and Youth, announced the launch of a call for proposals for community-informed initiatives that will address key challenges and advance equality for LGBTQ2 people. The $9.3 million fund will focus on projects that address the key challenges and unequal treatment of LGBTQ2 people.

These projects will further support federal efforts to advance equality for LGBTQ2 communities facing barriers due to intersecting identity factors. This includes people identifying as Indigenous, Black, or racialized; seniors; youth; those living with a disability; Canadians from rural and remote communities; and official language minority LGBTQ2 communities.

The deadline to submit applications is June 30, 2022.  To find out more and to apply to the call for proposals, visit our website.
