National Survey Results: The Impact of COVID-19 on the LGBTQI2S Community

Description / Summary

LGBTQI2S communities continue to be among the most vulnerable in Canada. During this time of uncertainty amid a global pandemic, supporting LGBTQI2S communities continues to be more important than ever. Despite many gaps in data, we know that LGBTQI2S people continue to face significant discrimination in all areas of life. From barriers to accessing healthcare and mental health services to facing higher rates of homelessness, poverty, and social isolation — one thing is evident, our community needs support now more than ever. 

Through an in-kind partnership with INNOVATIVE Research Group, Egale presents a study that highlights the unique impact that the COVID-19 crisis has on Canada’s LGBTQI2S community.
