This initiative helps create equal opportunities for LGBTQ2 Canadian businesses. The trade mission will provide LGBTQ2 businesses an opportunity to “sit at the table”. For too long, LGBTQ2 businesses have been under-represented in procurement and trade opportunities, both domestically and abroad. This mission will help correct this situation by levelling the playing field for LGBTQ2-owned businesses in Canada.
The CGLCC works closely with several other organizations focused on supporting and encouraging the growth of diverse-owned companies, including Aboriginals, visible minorities and women. The CGLCC’s goal is to build greater networks and opportunities for diverse businesses to collaborate and grow their activities. The launching of the first-ever LGBTQ2 trade mission will help the CGLCC fulfill these objectives.
The CGLCC looks forward to working with the federal government to ensure the success of this important initiative.
