These are a few objectives the partners hope to achieve through this project:

  • Understand the barriers the LGBTQ+ individuals face to volunteer.
  • Create tools and resources to support the integration of LGBTQ+ individuals into non-profit organizations. Educate leaders of volunteers, and staff working with volunteers, to provide them with the best practice tools and resources to build an inclusive volunteer program that engages LGBTQ+ individuals. These will include inclusion policies and development of best practices for volunteer management in line with the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement. Our support will include a combination of workshops and online learning to increase our reach.
  • Promote inclusion of the LGBTQ+ community to the voluntary sector through ongoing and informative communication.
