Round-table discussion: Canada's role in promoting human rights for LGBTQI people internationally | Égides

Canada and Quebec are at the forefront of the defense of human rights, specifically those of LGBTQI communities, on the international scene. More specifically, Canada and Quebec play a leading role on issues related to LGBTQI communities, a leading diplomatic role within the Francophonie and a strong commitment to funding in support of LGBTQI activists.

However, today, in light of national and international events, we deplore a clear decline in the treatment of LGBTQI communities around the world. The commitment of Governments, particularly in Canada and Quebec, to supporting philanthropic organizations and LGBTQI activists is all the more crucial today.

Yes, international financial support for LGBTQI communities is a key issue for the future of our communities. Every 2 years, the Global Philanthropy Project unveils its Global Resources Report: Government and Philanthropic Support for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex communities. An analysis of this report published with Égides (International Francophone Alliance for Equality and Diversities) has shown, for instance, that only 1% of LGBTQI funding worldwide is focused on French-speaking countries. This round-table will provide the opportunity to publicly unveil the new 2021-2022 report.

The roundtable will feature panelists from political dignitaries, representatives of international funders, LGBTQI organizations and LGBTQI activists.

This round-table discussion is brought to you by Égides (International Francophone Alliance for Equality and Diversities), in partnership with Fierté Montréal, the Global Philanthropy Project and the Dignity Canada Network.
