LGBTQ+ Refugee Programs

We work with LGBTQ+ Refugees!

MCC Toronto helps LGBTQ+ refugees, refugee claimants and newcomers find safety and community in Canada. If you identify as LGBTQ+ and are a refugee who has experienced discrimination, violence or threats of violence or other forms of persecution on the basis of your gender identity, expression, or sexual orientation, we may be able to assist and support you.

You can also find out how you can support our work.

We have also launched special initiatives for those from Ukraine and Afghanistan.

If you need help but do not identify as LGBTQ+, please contact one of the following organizations:
