OCASI (Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants) invites frontline workers to participate in: Creating Positive Spaces for LGBTQIA+ Newcomers: A Webinar Series for Frontline Workers.

LGBTQIA+ newcomers and refugees are an integral, though often invisible, part of immigrant, refugee, and LGBTQIA+ communities. Their experience of marginalization from within cultural communities and mainstream LGBTQIA+ communities often leaves individuals feeling that there are few options for obtaining services.

This series, hosted by a range of experienced professionals working in the sector, will allow settlement sector workers to acquire the skills and knowledge in areas related to equitable service provision for LGBTQIA+ immigrants and refugees.

Webinar 2: The Importance of Terminology and Language in Building Positive Spaces

Date: Thursday, January 26th, 2018 - 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon

Webinar 3: Trans Migrations - Barriers that Trans Refugees Face In Canada

Date: Thursday, February 1st, 2018 - 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon

Speaker: Kusha Dadui

Speaker: Gabriela Arredondo

NOTE: You have to register for each webinar separately. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining each of the webinars.


Technical guidelines:

  • Please be prepared with a headset and mic for the best participation options (or you will be limited to using 'chat' for questions and comments).
  • Please test your equipment BEFORE the webinar because it is quite difficult to resolve technical issues during the presentation.
  • For optimum participation we recommend using a high speed internet cable connection (NOT Wifi) for stable access.
  • Please turn off or move hands-free communication equipment (ie. cellphone, hands-free landline, laptop with mic) away from the computer you will be using for    the webinar. We have found that other equipment nearby sometimes causes audio interference.
