We take pride in offering programs and services for two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex (2SLGBTQI+) newcomers. We recognize that 2SLGBTQI+ people who are new to Canada face particular challenges including language barriers, lack of information about systems/services, social isolation, poverty, and barriers to employment. They also face discrimination as a result of their sexual orientation and gender identity.

Access Alliance provides services to 2SLGBTQI+ newcomers in a positive and knowledgeable environment. We recognize the need for targeted and culturally appropriate programs and services that ensure all voices are heard and represented.
