“A world in which people can shape the decisions that impact their lives, enjoy freedoms, and navigate an equal world free of violence.”

Leaders in anti-discrimination work

The Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD) intersectionally promotes diversity in gender identity, gender expression, and romantic and/or sexual orientation in all its forms on a national level through services in the areas of education, health, and advocacy. Our resources and programming can be used to uplift gender and sexual minorities, as well as give them tools to wider populations in building allyship.

We are excited to take the next steps in the coming months with the release of our strategic plan. 

Book a Workshop

The CCGSD is committed to building a world without discrimination, built on three pillars: education, research, and advocacy. We know that education has many benefits to the people who access it: education has been shown to reduce child mortality and increase civic engagement. Crucially, education helps develop individual resiliency as well as social cohesion.
