LGBTQ+ Newcomer Women Focus Group

Access Aliance


Have you been in Canada 7 years or less?

Are you an LGBTQ+ woman and/or trans person?

We want to hear from you!

We are a team of community researchers. We want to build evidence on discriminations and barriers that LGBTQ+ women and other trans people face, and how we can create safe spaces and services for this community.


  • Identify as LGBTQ+ women and/or trans people (recognizing the fluidity of sexuality/gender, this includes those who are:
    trans-masculine, agender, gender queer, gender non-
    binary, questioning)
  • Have lived in Canada 7 years or less
  • Are 18 years or older

Join us for a 1.5 hour group discussion with other LGBTQ+ women and researchers (you can also request an individual interview).

You will receive $20 in recognition of
your time for participating in the focus
group (or $15 for an interview).
Light refreshments will be offered
during the discussion.
If you require childcare, please request beforehand.

If you are interested in participating please:

Call: (416) 324-0927 ext. 327

This project is conducted by researchers at Access Alliance & University of Toronto, and is funded by the Women’s College Hospital
