ACTIF is an outcome of significant efforts made by Canadian civil society, coordinated by Dignity Network Canada (DNC), to advocate for greater Canadian support for advancing the human rights of LGBTQ2I people internationally. It represents an important component of Canada’s $30M LGBTQ2I international assistance program which highlights Canada’s broader dedication to supporting the human rights of LGBTQ2I people worldwide in its international solidarity work, whose diverse communities around the world face systemic discrimination, violence, and human rights violations.
ACTIF’s first cohort of funded projects includes 7 initiatives with 28 partners spanning 17 countries across the globe. The projects we selected following a call for proposals launched in the spring of 2021 for collaborative projects between Canadian and Southern partners to advance the human rights of LGBTQ2I persons in countries in the Global South, specifically those eligible for Official Development Assistance.
