LGBTIQ Diversity Training
The Case for LGBTIQ Training
Canada and Ontario offers many protections under the law for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Intersex and Questioning individuals, employees and consumers. Not understanding this can put your business or organization at a disadvantage. The reality is that between 6-8% of the Canadian population self identifies as Gay or Lesbian or nearly 3 million Canadians.
