Safer Spaces began due to the generous funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. This funding enabled us to create quality workshops and valuable resources. The program is now embarking on a process towards becoming self sustainable.
Prices listed below are fees for non-profit organizations, and increased fees will be applied for for-profit companies. We also can use a sliding scale for non-profits that are unable to pay full price for the services. Providing these services for a minimal fee helps us to continue offering this program beyond our grant period. Prices effective as of April 1st, 2019.
With adequate preparation time, workshop content will be based on your industry and program areas. We can also develop a custom workshop for your organization. All workshops includes digital and/or print copies of our latest educational resources. Workshops delivered outside of Barrie, may incur travel reimbursement at $0.41/km, and potential accommodations if necessary.
Take advantage of our consultation services to enhance your level of LGBTQ accessibility and inclusion within your organization.
The Assessment Tool is, and will always be, free to use and access. The tool is a self assessment on LGBTQ inclusion, which covers organizational policy, culture, knowledge, resources, and more.
The analyzing and creation of the summarized report card, and presenting this back to the organization, is an optional paid service you can take advantage of. The Report Card can be used as a tool to measure progress in the program, and used as a template to create a work plan towards greater inclusion.
Promotional materials highlight the agency’s participation in the program and working towards creating a safer space for the LGBTQ community. Agencies must undergo adequate amount of professional development workshops, complete the organizational assessment, and have an ongoing commitment to LGBTQ inclusion.
