  • Financially assist LGBT+ people under persecution to gain asylum as Refugees in safe countries, such as Canada, through the Sponsorship stream of grant funding; and
  • Financially assist LGBT+ people under persecution to become integrated into Canadian life as Newcomers through the Community Services stream of grant funding.

Grant funding streams comprise the following:

    • Sponsorship Agreement Holders (SAH),
    • Constituency Groups (CG) existing as, or in partnership with Canadian registered charities,
