Help Support LGBTQ+ Ukrainians Now

The war in Ukraine has driven millions to flee their homes into neighbouring countries such as Poland and Hungry. We are very concerned about the additional human rights violations and the horrific conditions that many LGBTQ+ Ukrainians will continue to face as they migrate to other Eastern European countries.

As the exclusive LGBTQ+ Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH) with the government of Canada, MCC Toronto will provide support to all LGBTQ+ identified Ukrainians who are trying to come to Canada and those that arrive safely. Working with other member organizations we will collectively work to supply support and services including:

    • Orientation and peer support
    • Mental wellness and counselling sessions
    • One-on-one peer support
    • Legal and immigration information sessions
    • Financial literacy
    • Housing solutions
    • Employment support
    • Social assistance
    • Volunteer opportunities
    • Grants

The government of Canada has introduced Immigration measures for people affected by the situation in Ukraine and we encourage all Ukrainians in need of protection to take advantage of these provisions.

If you are an LGBTQ Ukrainian refugee in Canada (or Toronto) and are looking for support, please connect to our LGBTQ Asylum Seeker Peer Support Program. If you are an LGBTQ Ukrainian refugee seeking to come to Canada, please connect to our Settlement Program as Canada’s only LGBTQ exclusive Sponsorship Agreement Holder with the Federal Government.
