SUPPORT SERVICES

Individual Accompaniment

When LGBTQ migrants accessing AGIR services face increased vulnerabilities (e.g. language barriers, mental health difficulties, disability, risk of temporary status loss), our volunteers and employees can offer a support service as needed to promote their access to services as well as their progress within the immigration process.

Social Activities

Over the years, AGIR has organised summer picnics, board-game nights, karaoke, workshops, Xmas Party, etc. to provide a venue for our members to connect and have fun!

Organizational Training

This program is designed for community organizations and other groups that provide services to LGBTQ+ migrants. It aims to:

  • Revisit the terminology associated with sexual orientation, gender identity and expression as terms evolve and can be the result of a specific cultural context.
  • Examine the relationship between colonization and the current criminalization around the world
  • Explore the realities and the isues affecting LGBTQ migrants and refugees living in Montréal
  • Discuss inclusion and anti oppressive practices in community organizations

Advocacy Campaign

AGIR defends the rights and interests of LGBTQ+ migrants through organizing non-partisan awareness campaigns, notably the Trans-migrant Campaign. In addition, as a member of the Canadian Council for Refugees (CCR), our participation allows us to contribute to the development of more inclusive social policies that fight poverty and promote integration.
