Celebrate Pride! With CTRC

June 14, 2022

Canada recognises Pride Month in June. As we remember the history, the hardships, and the progress made by LGBTQ2S+ communities, we also celebrate diversity. The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced existing social, economic, and health inequities within LGBTQ2S+ communities. Canada has a disproportionately high rate of LGBTQ2S+ children involved in child welfare. It is essential to reflect that learning about terminology, policy, and how to support LGBTQ2S+, children and youth is an ongoing and year-round commitment.

To help you learn about, celebrate, and better support LGBTQ2S+, children and youth members of your community, we have compiled some resources. Check out our Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn pages for more updated content.
