Envisioning LGBT Rights - Roundtable Report


 Envisioning LGBT Refugee Rights in Canada: Exploring Asylum Issues (June 2012)” is the first report created by the Envisioning project

The report is based on a Round Table Dialogue with members of 14 organizations who work with LGBTI asylum seekers in the Toronto region, as well as two conference presentations. As a participatory action research project, Envisioning convened the Round Table to seek input from service providers in shaping research which will continue over the next two years.

It provides a preliminary overview of the issues for LGBT asylum seekers, including: their experiences and obstacles; ways that service providers are trying to meet their needs; service gaps; and the impact of changes to immigration and refugee laws, especially Bill C-31.
