Queering Gender- Based Violence Prevention & Response in Canada Report & Toolkit

As part of its “Shockproofing Communities” project, the Canadian Women’s Foundation hired Wisdom2Action to conduct research on GBV affecting 2SLGBTQ+ communities in Canada. The resulting report presents the findings from a literature review, focus group, and interviews. It presents what we know about the scale and scope of GBV impacting 2SLGBTQ+ communities, looking at the experiences of queer and trans Black, Indigenous and people of colour (QTBIPOC), refugees and newcomers, trans+ people, queer women, youth, sex workers, and people living rurally or remotely. It then turns to existing violence prevention and survivor support programs and points to the gaps and needs 2SLGBTQ+ communities are naming. It also looks at promising practices and offer opportunities and recommendations for funders and service providers. The report concludes with suggestions for mobilizing knowledge about GBV prevention and response for 2SLGBTQ+ communities.

The report is accompanied by a 5-page toolkit that summarizes the main findings and recommendations of the report for social service providers. 

Health and well-being among non-binary people: Social Supports and Barriers to Healthcare

People who identify as non-binary are those whose gender identities resist/reject the gender binary (man vs. woman). They include people who identify with a gender other than man or woman, who do not identify with any gender, or who have a gender identity that fluctuates, among other identities. Previous research has found that up to 1 in 3 transgender (trans) people identify as non-binary. Thus, although not all non-binary people identify as transgender or trans, it is important to consider the unique experiences of non-binary people when assessing the health and well-being of broader trans communities. This is a report released by TransPulse Canada in 2021, it details the experiences of trans and nonbinary peoples navigating Canadian healthcare systems.
