LGBTQ rights are human rights

Members of the LGBTQ communities continue to face challenges every day.

From homophobic and transphobic language and behavior in the workplace, housing, healthcare or service, to increasing isolation as we age, to the challenges faced by newcomers to Canada who have escaped from violence and persecution in other countries—our communities encounter very real barriers to living their authentic lives and being free from discrimination and harassment.

The 519’s Education and Training team provides organizations with the insight, tools and understanding to create environments that are LGBTQ-inclusive, respectful and welcoming.
