Needs and Gaps in Services of Edmonton's LGBTQ Population: Final Report

Canada’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) population has gained significant legislative protections since the 1970s. However, challenges remain for LGBTQ people in health care, domestic violence supports, housing for seniors and homeless youth, refugee supports, and more.

Read our report, Needs and Gaps in Services of Edmonton's LGBTQ Population: Final Report to the Edmonton Community Foundation (ECF), today!

This research report uses three research questions to analyze the needs, gaps in services, and possible solutions, for Edmonton’s LGBTQ communities. As will be explored in detail in this report, despite progress in legislation, challenges remain for LGBTQ people in attaining adequate and appropriate services. The findings of this report were gathered through a literature review, key informant interviews, and focus group discussions.
