It is with great enthusiasm that Montréal Pride has awarded 80 bursaries for the National Conference! We would like to thank all those who applied from LBGTQ organizations across Canada. From Yellowknife to Lac Saint-Jean, we’ve selected LGBTQ+ from a wide spectrum of organizations to represent their communities and to join us while we explore issues that matter.
Bursary recipients often lack the means to attend a conference. However central to the theme of this conference is inclusion and creating the opportunity for LGBTQ+ youth, families, seniors, researchers, community groups, unions, companies and governments to join the conversation about LGBTTIQA2S Lives. In discussing our realities, we need to create space for those that could not otherwise attend. The National Conference bursaries offer the opportunity to present on their experiences and research, and to participate in the conversation.
With the help of the National Conference’s Scientific Committee, we have selected the recipients by considering the groups and the voices of applicants, and reviewed all candidates to ensure that the greatest diversity of voices would be present. By registering for the conference, governmental and corporate groups not only assist low income and community groups registrations, but they also help fund our bursary recipients. Register now to take part in this unparalleled conversation and thank you for your participation!
