Nov 1, 2023 - May 16, 2025
Through this 19-month project, Egale Canada, Planned Parenthood NL Sexual Health Centre (PPNLSHC), and Mokami Status of Women Council will conduct research that will help improve GBV services for at-risk groups of 2SLGBTQI+ youth in Newfoundland and Labrador. Exacerbated by geographic isolation, lack of access to resources and supports, and layered oppressions like homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia, youth in this area experience more GBV than the national average. To improve services, research suggests increasing GBV education for youth and educators, as well as reducing the barriers to GBV education. First, they will utilize a mixed methodology to better understand the opportunities and barriers for healthy relationships from the perspectives of decision-makers, teachers, and 2SLGBTQI+ youth. Second, they will explore what role PPNLSHC, Egale, and Mokami Status of Women Council can play to increase decision-maker buy-in, teacher upskilling, and information comprehension by 2SLGBTQI+ youth. To do so, the project will include participatory action research (PAR) with 10 participant co-researchers (youth and educators) co-developing PAR activities, and social network analysis with 10 focus groups (60 participants). They will share information on the research findings through knowledge products, such as a report and educational tools, as well as open-access publication, and conference presentation.

Program Purpose:

The purpose of the GBV Program is to strengthen the GBV sector to address gaps in supports for two groups of survivors: 1) Indigenous women and their communities, and 2) underserved populations (including women living with a disability, non-status/refugee /immigrant women, LGBTQ2S, gender non-conforming people and ethno-cultural women) in Canada. The Program provides grant and contribution funding to Canadian organizations to improve supports to help create long-term, comprehensive solutions at the national, regional, and local levels.
