Ontario Curriculum Advisory:
Including 2SLGBTQIAP+ Identities and Experiences in Family Studies

This is our fourth Curriculum Advisory – Including 2SLGBTQIAP+ Identities and Experiences in Family Studies. Because so many of our courses touch on themes of identity and relationships, it is essential for us to be informed on this topic so that all students feels seen and welcome in our courses. Explore this resource to learn how we can celebrate and understand these identities.

Ontario Curriculum Advisory:
