Egale Canada, ACCEC, and INNOVATIVE have partnered to release a Second National Report on the Impacts of COVID-19 on 2SLGBTQI People in Canada. The report is a follow up to an initial national study released in April that uncovered alarmingly disproportionate impacts of COVID-19 for 2SLGBTQI people in areas including household finances, job loss, mental and physical health, and overall quality of life.

Like with the first report, the second study reveals that despite improvements for all Canadians, 2SLGBTQI people continue to be disproportionately impacted during COVID-19. Most significantly, this study found that Black and racialized 2SLGBTQI people are the MOST impacted during these unprecedented times.
