The findings of our latest national survey, I​mpacts of COVID-19 on Canada’s LGBTQI2S communities, show that COVID-19 has had a disproportionate impact on the LGBTQI2S community. These impacts have affected our community across the board, from issues with mental and physical health, job security or household finances and more.

It is important that as a community we come together to help one another through this difficult time. 

Our team at Egale has created a number of resources for LGBTQI2S people to help navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic while in "Queerantine". Our resources span from general health tips and mental health resources and legal resources to information for parents, educators, seniors or employers/employees. Our Queerantine 101 resource hub, available on our website, has something for everyone. 

A few of the top resources include:
