Share your views — Helping 2SLGBTQI+ Older Adults to Age in Place

About this consultation

This consultation is open from May 1, 2024 at 12 pm (noon), Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), until June 26, 2024 at 12 am (midnight), Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete the questionnaire.

The purpose of this consultation is to gather information to increase understanding of the experiences of older adults who are Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex, or who use other terms related to gender and sexual diversity (2SLGBTQI+) and living at home. The information gathered could support policy development as part of the commitment of the Government of Canada's first Federal 2SLGBTQI+Action Plan. The action plan aims to advance rights and equality for 2SLGBTQI+ people in Canada.

The ideas and experiences you share in this consultation could inform programs and policies aimed at removing barriers for the 2SLGBTQI+ population to age in place in Canada.

A "what we heard" report will be available with the results at a later date on the main consultation page.

Terms and acronyms change. While some terms referencing sexual or gender diversity have fallen out of favour or are no longer in common use, new terms have been created, or even reclaimed, to be more inclusive to reflect today's broader 2SLGBTQI+ community.
