September 14, 2021

As the 2021 school year kicks off, there are a lot of uncertainties that come with it. One thing that remains consistent, our community is dedicated to fostering #InclusiveSchools. Our team at Egale Canada is here to support your in-person, remote, or hybrid learning, by providing you with the resources and tools you need to help foster greater 2SLGBTQI inclusion.

Our newly-launched back-to-school webpage features a curated list of our top school resources for the whole school community.

We invite you to explore our latest resources or attend one of our upcoming free webinars:

[FEATURED RESOURCE] Draw the Line - Against Transphobic Violence (Webinar)

Did you know? 40% of trans students reported languishing mental health (Peter, T., Campbell, C.P. & Taylor, C., 2021). 

A top pick from the Egale Learning team, Draw the Line is a free 90-minute webinar to help educators and students alike to act in allyship by learning how to recognize and intervene when transphobic violence occurs. Our first set of webinars are September 28 and October 4!
