Webinar

Access to education is the best way to break the cycle of poverty. Benefits are clear not only for students, but also for their communities and for our province. Breaking down financial barriers, both real and perceived, was the primary goal improving Ontario’s student financial assistance program. This spring, the Government of Ontario embarked on the single largest modernization to Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) ever, making tuition free for low and moderate-income families, reducing costs for many middle-income families, and turning a complicated grant and loan system into a streamlined system geared to increase accessibility and flexibility for students. Join Deputy Premier and Minister for Advanced Education and Skills Development Deb Matthews to find out how Ontario brought together those inside and outside government to ensure that merit, not money, determines who can access higher education.

Rainbow´s Pride in Scarborough

cal  Sat Aug 27
11-4pm

AccessPoint - 3079 Danforth Avenue

Rainbow’s Pride in Scarborough (RPIS) is an annual event put together by a grassroots community collective. It features food, drag, spoken word, dancing and community resources.

This event was founded by Rainbow Coco Channel, a trans woman with an intellectual disability who recognized the need to create more positive spaces and to celebrate the diversity of LGBTQ+ people in Scarborough. For the past 4 years, the event has brought Scarborough’s LGBTQ community together, and has reached out to folks who are isolated, who are experiencing intersecting forms of oppression based on race, disability and economic status, and who have felt excluded from many mainstream spaces.

The event is organized by and for people with lived experiences of having an intellectual disability and identifying as LGBTQQI2S (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, Two-Spirit) and their friends and allies. Current community partners and collaborators include Access Alliance, Community Living Toronto, Griffin Centre, and Rainbow Health Ontario, TRIP harm reduction project, and other groups who have been supporting in various ways. There is no operating budget and we are always looking for funding support and sponsorships to cover the cost.

For specific accommodation needs including food allergies please contact: Rainbow rainbowcocochannel27@outlook.com
