Funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the City of Ottawa, and sponsored by Pink Triangle Services (PTS) of Ottawa, The GLBT Wellness Project identifies the needs and strengths of GLBT people living and/or working in Ottawa and documents available wellness related resources.
This report draws together the results of four key components of the study including:
1. A community needs and strengths survey of GLBT people living and/or working in the greater Ottawa area
2. A needs and resources survey of almost 50 service providers who serve the GLBT population in Ottawa
3. Two focus groups — one with GLBT youth and one with transgendered persons — to discuss their unique issues
4. A results work shop with over 60 GLBT community leaders and other health professionals to validate the findings and identify the next steps for action
