Our Projects

Rural 

Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender non-conforming, intersex (2SLGBTQI+) people face pervasive health, housing, employment, safety, and migratory disparities throughout Canada. These disparities are further exacerbated for 2SLGBTQI+ folks in rural communities.

Through a series of convenings with current and prospective members in rural communities, the Enchanté Network will support these organizations by connecting them with organizations facing similar challenges and assisting with advocacy and capacity building. Through monthly convenings, the Enchanté Network will bring current and prospective rural members together to discuss key issues and opportunities that impact their communities. These monthly shared connections will allow rural 2SLGBTQI+ organizations to identify the systems-level barriers they experience in their work. It will also be a place to connect and align their work regionally and nationally.

Connecting Rural 2SLGBTQI+Organizations: Consultation Series

The Enchanté Network is calling all its rural members! From January to March, we are putting together 5 virtual consultations to connect rural 2SLGBTQI+ organizations, address different topics and identify the systems-level barriers these organizations face. Rurality...

Back to Our Roots

The Back to Our Roots project is dedicated to connecting and supporting Black 2SLGBTQI+ movements from coast to coast to coast. Led by a deep commitment to anti-racism and intersectionality, this project will amplify community-based leadership and support Black 2SLGBQTI+ movement building on a national stage with an eye for sustainability. 

Through this project, the Enchanté Network will work to fill a long overdue gap in Canada’s 2SLGBTQI+ and Black-specific service sectors. By exploring the possibility of a national Black 2SLGBTQI+ organization in Canada through community-led engagement, TEN will establish the groundwork necessary to ensure public investments into equity, anti-racism, and intersectionality improve the lives of Black 2SLGBTQI+ Canadians too. By leveraging TEN’s extensive network, TEN will engage directly with Black 2SLGBTQI+ communities working, living, and striving within our existing network and beyond.
