We expect to post results on this first phase of engagement later in summer, 2018.
What was this engagement about?
We want to design a confidential public engagement process where LGBTQ2S+ Yukoners will feel safe to tell us what issues and priorities are most important to them.
The information we collect will help us have safe, meaningful, constructive conversations with the LGBTQ2S+ community in the future. The Government of Yukon would like to work with the LGBTQ2S+ community to identify concrete actions that will ensure our laws, policies, programs and services are as non-discriminatory and inclusive of LGBTQ2S+ Yukoners as possible.
We have already heard feedback on how to better engage LGBTQ2S+ Yukoners. We are building on these conversations to improve how we work with LGBTQ2S+ communities.We are currently working with a consultant from the non-profit organization, QMUNITY, which works to improve the lives of LGBTQ2S+ individuals. Meetings with community groups are already taking place and more are scheduled for later this summer.
How will my input make a difference?
Your input will help us make sure the next phase of public engagement is inclusive, respectful, confidential, accessible, and meaningful. It will also help ensure government practices are meeting the needs and priorities of LGBTQ2S+ Yukoners.
