   Testimonals

Pflag Canada is proud to be Canada’s only national organization that offers peer-to-peer support striving to help all Canadians with issues of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Pflag Canada was founded by parents who wished to help themselves and their family members understand and accept their LGBTQ2S children. The “coming-out” process can be a critical time for families. When the adjustment period is particularly long or painful, relationships can become permanently damaged, resulting in a lifetime of emotional scars. People cannot always rise above the challenge of accepting themselves or their family member, and the results can be devastating, even fatal. Pflag supports these families through today, and give them hope for a better tomorrow.

Fierté Canada Pride (FCP) is a membership-based national association of Canadian Pride organizations. It is our mission to help build vibrant and strong Canadian Pride organizations through collaboration, offering support, networking, helping to develop a national identity of Pride, and by offering resources and advocacy for its members.

 

The Enchanté Network is an organization connecting and supporting 2Spirit and LGBTQ+ communities across Canada. We help build stronger 2Spirit and LGBTQ+ community organizations through providing resources, training, and peer to peer networking.
