Researching for LGBTQ Health

The Canadian Coalition Against LGBTQ+ Poverty

Did you know that LGBTQ+ people are more likely than our heterosexual, cisgender counterparts to live in poverty? The Re:searching for LGBTQ Health team has brought together a group of academic researchers, community organizations, and anti-poverty advocates to form a new coalition to address this issue—the Canadian Coalition Against LGBTQ+ Poverty (CCALP).

Our work to date has involved writing a joint submission to the consultation on Canada's first national poverty reduction strategy.

Over the coming months, we will also be working together to develop a national research agenda to address current gaps in knowledge about the relationship between poverty and health for LGBTQ+ people.
