Bill 7

The Bill 7 Award is named after the 1986 Ontario legislation that extended the protection of the Human Rights Code to lesbians and gays. Since its inception in 1988, we have been working hard to increase the number and size of the scholarships available. In recent years, we have been able to award 4-7 scholarships of $2,000 each. In total so far, over $70,000 has been presented to students in the queer community. All the money has been raised through donations. Ontario has the highest college and university tuition rates in the country and in the past year alone, tuition has increased 5%. Since 2006, tuition has risen has 71% in Ontario

Benefits Of individual Doners The Bill 7 Awards strives to grow our donor base so that we can keep pace with the rising costs associated with post-secondary education.

Your donations will enable LGBTQ2S youths studying in Ontario to reach their academic goals. This is youth that might otherwise have been marginalized due to their sexual orientation and could not afford the cost of an education. Together, we can make a significant difference through financial support. The Bill 7 Awards help LGBTQ2S students from all academic disciplines continue their PostSecondary education. Last year we were able to provide 5 $2,000 scholarships due to donations. With your support, Bill 7 can award more scholarships every year to students that can make a difference in our communities.
