Canada plans a program to support LGBTQ2 refugees
On June 1, 2019, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada announced the introduction of the Rainbow Refugee Assistance Partnership. This initiative will support Canadians who privately sponsor LGBTQ2 refugees who are fleeing violence and persecution in their home countries. The number of privately sponsored LGBTQ2 refugees has increased from 15 to 50 per year. Canada recognizes the specific vulnerabilities that LGBTQ2 refugees face and will continue to work closely with the community to help them make Canada their home. Last year, the Rainbow Refugee Society and the LGBTQ2 community sponsored 67 refugees to Canada. Between 2011 and April 2019, more than 80 LGBTQ2 refugees were resettled through the Rainbow Refugee Assistance Pilot.
