Frequently Asked Questions: How to Secure Training for Your Organization

Rainbow Health Ontario helps to build 2SLGBTQ clinical and cultural competency in Ontario’s healthcare and social service sectors. We specialize in equity, diversity and inclusion training that is designed for and by health care and social service professionals. We have provided learning opportunities to 50,000+ providers. We have 15+ years of experience, and we are the only organization that specializes in 2SLGBTQ health in Ontario.

All educational pathways start with our asynchronous, CME-certified, and only mandatory course 2SLGBTQ Foundations. This course is also available in French: Fondements 2SLGBTQ. From there, learners can continue their education by taking our dynamic and interactive facilitator-led trainings. Organizations can book private sessions of any of our facilitator-led courses for groups of 35+ learners. If you do not have 35 people for a private session, your staff can attend any of our regularly offered public sessions. Contact us at to secure training for your organization.

We offer Lunch & Learn sessions as a starting point in your learning journey. However, making your organization, health team, or agency 2SLGBTQ inclusive takes time. It cannot be accomplished in a short, one-off session. The education of individual staff must be paired up with organizational and policy change.

These sessions are not a replacement for our 2SLGBTQ Foundations course but an opportunity to discuss basic concepts to ready your staff to learn more.

Please note that we charge a fee for these sessions, and we are available to do them online or in-person (depending on location).

All our courses are offered online. Our online learning environment is dynamic, and our facilitator-led trainings ensure participation with break-out rooms, case studies, learning packages, community of practice discussions, etc. Please check out our online learning hub here:

We also accept requests for in-person training across Ontario. These requests are considered on a case-to-case basis and the decision to accept the request is based on a variety of factors, i.e., COVID levels, schedule and staff availability. Please note that there is an additional cost for in-person training to cover travel and accommodation expenses for our staff and subject matter experts when applicable.

Our fees vary depending on content and length of the course.
