A private and confidential meeting that is about 15 minutes, in French or English (Arabic or Spanish on demand), with AGIR support team who will help assess your current situation and your immediate needs as an LGBTQIA+ migrant Montreal; provide you with useful information on site or via a follow-up email.
The General group is open to all. Closed groups are recently introduced to provide a safer space to connect and share. Specific themes of interest are announced in advance.
When LGBTQIA+ 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.
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!
This program is designed for community organizations and other groups that provide services to LGBTQIA+ 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 LGBTQIA+ migrants and refugees living in Montréal
- Discuss inclusion and anti oppressive practices in community organizations
AGIR defends the rights and interests of LGBTQIA+ 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.
