Apply to Be a Champion for the Positive Spaces Initiative 

What is a Positive Spaces Initiative (PSI) Champion?

A PSI Champion is someone who is passionate about advocating for LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans/two-spirit, queer/questioning, intersex, asexual, and other diverse gender identities and sexual orientations) immigrants, refugees and newcomers. You don't have to be an expert on LGBTQIA+ issues in order to apply, just have a desire and capacity to learn and make a difference in your local community.

What Do Champions Do?

Champions work closely with PSI Coordinators to help contextualize our vision, mission, and resources to the needs of their region; they provide ongoing feedback and help to identify gaps that should be addressed by the initiative. Champions also hold events in their community to support LGBTQIA+ newcomers.

What Supports Do PSI Champions Receive?

Champions receive training, resources, and ongoing support from the PSI Coordinators.


Who is Eligible to Apply?

OCASI is looking for volunteer Champions who are 18 years of age or older, from diverse regions of Ontario. Anyone who has the capacity and interest to promote the Positive Spaces Initiative’s mission and vision through advocacy and events is encouraged to apply.
