Find the results
The LGBTQ2S+ public engagement is now complete. In the coming months, we will post a final survey in this space. This survey will help us prioritize what we heard and capture any comments that may have been missed during the community dialogues or focus group sessions.
We will provide a What We Heard summary of the results of this public engagement following the survey.
What was this engagement about?
The intent of the engagement was to encourage LGBTQ2S+ Yukoners and allies to help us create an action plan to ensure that Government of Yukon services better meet the needs of LGBTQ2S+ Yukoners.
This comprehensive public engagement is part of our approach to reviewing legislation, policies and services, and modernizing them to be non-discriminatory for LGBTQ2S+ Yukoners. This process is our government’s formal way of gathering comprehensive input, so that we can develop a thoughtful and coordinated government-wide approach to LGBTQ2S+ inclusion in our services.
QMUNITY, a BC non-profit organization that works to improve the lives of LGBTQ2S+ people, led the work. They helped us design this public engagement to ensure it was safe, dignified and inclusive.
How will my input make a difference?
We will use the input from this engagement to develop an action plan that will help build LGBTQ2S+ inclusion in Government of Yukon programs and services.
