Envisioning LGBT Refugee Rights in Canada: Exploring Asylum Issues - Report

in CANADA, 29/07/2012

The report is based on a Round Table Dialogue with members of 14 organizations who work with LGBTI asylum seekers in the Toronto region, as well as two conference presentations. It provides a preliminary overview of the issues for LGBT asylum seekers, including: their experiences and obstacles; ways that service providers are trying to meet their needs; service gaps; and the impact of changes to immigration and refugee laws, especially Bill C-31.

As a participatory action research project, Envisioning convened the Round Table to seek input from service providers in shaping research which will continue over the next two years.

Envisioning Global LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Human Rights is an international research project housed at the Centre for Feminist Research, York University, with partnerships in Africa, the Caribbean, India, the Netherlands, the USA and Canada. It is hoped that the report will be useful, especially in working with policy makers and decision makers.
