In January 2020, Egale Canada published the National 2SLGBTQI Action Plan as a high-level policy document to inform Federal Government’s actions on 2SLGBTQI rights and inclusion. This action plan captures an in-depth assessment of 2SLGBTQI rights in Canada on challenges pertaining to access across all public services; issues within sports inclusion; necessary reforms in areas of justice, asylum system and International assistance stipulating targeted recommendations for advancing 2SLGBTQI rights and development in Canada and internationally.

To note: This report used the acronym “LGBTQI2S” at the time of original publication in 2020.

In 2022, Egale decided to adopt the practice of placing “2S” for “Two Spirit” at the beginning of “LGBTQI” to acknowledge that Two Spirit Indigenous people were the first sexual and gender minority people in North America, and also to demonstrate solidarity with them in this period of truth and reconciliation in Canada.
