19.) Workshop For Cannassist


“CanAssist which is a small non-profit program that works with youth ages  15-19 who have mental or physical disabilities to find meaningful employment in the community.  Our team is organizing a retreat/training day for mid-July, we are looking to improve our team knowledge around LGBTQ2+ issues, specifically around gender identity and gender expression. Since we work with vulnerable youth, we want to ensure that we have the tools to provide a safe and inclusive space for all and I’m wondering whether Pride advocacy group provides any kind professional development opportunity we could have our team attend that would address sexuality, gender identity, and gender expression over the summer, or if there are any community-based workshops you can recommend for us to attend, or if you can recommend a presenter who would be able to facilitate a workshop for us here at TeenWork (we are located in CanAssist, inside the CARSA building)?


After browsing your site, the queer & trans 101 workshop may be the best option for us. We have a small budget to pay for such a workshop, and our team consists of 5 members. “


  • Would like to work from an IPOC/Indigenous lens, and start date as early as July 13

20.) Approval of Minutes – End of meeting.
