To support, educate and provide resources to anyone with questions or concerns. As well, to offer local, practical and emotional peer-to-peer family support for individuals and their loved ones challenged by gender/sexual identity.

Canadians with issues of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.

Highlight of Programs / Services Offered:

Canada’s only national organization that offers peer-to-peer support, PFLAG Canada is many things—it is comfort, it is support and it is a source of information. However, PFLAG Canada in its simplest form, is its supporters: you and the many others across Canada, working to build a better future for the LGBTQ community of Canada.
