2SLGBTQ Family Resources

The 2SLGBTQ Family Resources Program at Sherbourne Health provides information, resources, and referrals for queer and trans folks looking to grow their families, 2SLGBTQ families, and gender-expansive kids and youth. Our goal is to make access to information, programs, and services more readily available to all members of our diverse communities.

You can reach out to our Family Resource Worker for more information: familyresources@sherbourne.on.ca.

2SLGBTQ Family Resources’ workshops are community-oriented groups for 2SLGBTQ folks interested in learning more about growing their family through surrogacy, adoption or pregnancy. Through presentations, personal reflection, group discussion and guest speakers, participants will have the opportunity to consider the practical, emotional, social, and legal issues related to queer and trans family planning in the Ontario context. All sessions are offered in person and require registration.
