Queerios LGBTQ+*


Queerios is a drop-in program for youth 12-17 who identify as LGBTQ+. Like The Zone, it has a focus on social activities, positive mental health, skill-building, and connecting youth to resources in their community. On-site counselling is available to all youth. Activities include art, sports, and games, as well as a nutrition program. The program runs Thursday from 5-8 pm at the Kanata Dick Brûle Community Centre (170 Castlefrank Rd.).

*We would like to acknowledge and welcome all youth who identify as LGBTQ including non-binary, gender fluid, two-spirit, asexual, pansexual, and queer youth. We also welcome straight and cis youth who are invited as a support to their peers.

For more information, please contact youth@wocrc.ca.
