Welcome to the Canadian Association of Education and Outreach (CAEO) Québec!
We are a charitable volunteer organisation founded in 1976 originally operating under the name of Gay Line. Since then, the organisation has grown to reflect the needs of the Québec English-Speaking LGBTQ+ Community and to take on a new identity. Our mission is to combat homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, queerphobia, intersexism and heterosexism. We strive for equal status and equal opportunity within our society and aim to eliminate mere tolerance and achieve real acceptance.
CAEO Québec currently operates one community program that helps us achieve our objectives:
SILK, (Sexual Information Leads to Knowledge) an educational program that provides English speaking high schools with free workshops geared to increase awareness and knowledge on sexual orientation, gender identity, diversity and inclusivity. This programs aims to dispel homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, queerphobia, intersexism and heterosexism to help make schools a safer space for all students.
After celebrating 40 years in 2016, CAEO Québec moves into the future with confidence and pride of having been an integral part of the English-Speaking LGBTQ+ Community in our province.
