2SLGBTQIA+ entrepreneurs across Canada face barriers that other communities don’t. 2SLGBTQIA+ entrepreneurs need resources, support, and content that empowers them within the startup ecosystem.

This guide is co-presented by CGLCC and Startup Canada. Directed by CGLCC's expert knowledge, and curated by Startup Canada, we are proud to assemble and present this resource guide for 2SLGBTQIA+ founders across the country. Within this resource guide, you can access documents, videos, spreadsheets, infographics, and more submitted by CGLCC, Egale Canada, TransFocus Consulting, Futurpreneur, and more organizations to come.

Thank you to our partners

This is a living guide that we are committed to growing and evolving. We want to make sure 2SLGBTQIA+ entrepreneurs in Canada have the awareness and access to the resources that exist to support them and that organizations in Canada can continue to learn how to best support 2SLGBTQIA+ folks at work and beyond.
