What is PFLAG?

What is PFLAG door

PFLAG Canada is Canada’s only national organization that helps all Canadians with issues of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. PFLAG Canada supports, educates and provides resources to all individuals with questions or concerns.

The name PFLAG originated in the U.S. as an acronym for Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. In Canada, a wider concept for the organization had been adopted, as PFLAG Canada considers potential users of its services to be anyone within the LGBTQ community, any individual touched by issues of sexual orientation or gender identification or expression, as well as organizations, businesses, levels of government and other health and mental health services.

PFLAG Canada provides support, education, and resources on issues of sexual orientation and gender expression. There are over 60 chapters of PFLAG Canada across the nation.

Visit the PFLAG Canada website for information and resources on LGBTQ issues.


PFLAG Canada is a national voice that speaks for a more accepting Canadian society by providing support, education and resources on issues of sexual orientation and gender identity.

Through our PFLAG Canada Chapter and Contact network, we actively assist in the recognition and growth of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, intersex, queer and questioning persons and their families and friends, within their diverse cultures and societies.


PFLAG Canada is a nationally recognized presence with a highly effective network of people and resources focused on supporting and educating Canadians on issues of sexual orientation and gender identity.
