Call for Proposals to increase the capacity of 2SLGBTQI+ community organizations
March 13, 2023 – Toronto, Ontario — Women and Gender Equality Canada
Every Canadian deserves to fully participate in all spheres of society, regardless of gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation. Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and additional sexually and gender diverse (2SLGBTQI+) community organizations are key to creating a more equitable Canada for present and future generations.
Today, the Honourable Marci Ien, Minister for Women and Gender Equality and Youth announced the launch of a call for proposals to support 2SLGBTQI+ community organizations across the country whose initiatives contribute to a strong 2SLGBTQI+ movement in Canada.
Six months following the launch of the 2SLGBTQI+ Action Plan, the Government of Canada continues to prioritize direct support to 2SLGBTQI+ communities through this $25.5 million call for proposals. This includes supporting the growth, sustainability, and leadership of the 2SLGBTQI+ community organizations in advocating for and serving the communities they represent.
The deadline to submit applications is May 9, 2023, at 12:00 p.m. (noon) Pacific time. To find out more and to apply to the call for proposals, please visit our website.
“2SLGBTQI+ community organizations deliver vital services and carry out important work in their communities. This is why supporting community organizations is a key pillar of the 2SLGBTQI+ Action Plan, and is a key piece in moving the needle forward. The Action Plan reflects Canada’s commitment to create an inclusive future and new opportunities where everyone – regardless of who they love or how they identify – has an equal and fair chance at success.”
The Honourable Marci Ien, Minister for Women and Gender Equality and Youth
Budget 2022 committed $100 million to the 2SLGBTQI+ Federal Action Plan which included funding for new capacity-building grants and contributions for 2SLGBTQI+ community organizations.
The deadline to submit applications is May 9, 2023 at 12:00 p.m. (noon) Pacific time.
