I can answer that.
In response to the specific question of whether the situation is the same for an LGBTQI2-spirit individual as it is for another refugee, the answer is no. I think it's really important to understand that when people make an asylum claim or go through the system through private sponsorship, they are usually doing it as a family, in consultation with their community, or in a group of communities.
The people who request our help—over 700 last year—come to us as individuals. They are usually shunned by their families, or it's even the families that are inflicting violence.
To isolate those individuals going through the system is traumatic for them and puts them at risk. We have had instances of individuals going to camps in other countries—for example, Frankfurt—and finding real challenges within the population of refugees there.
Especially as Canada labels the LGBTQ2 community as a vulnerable population, that also needs to be reflected in immigration policy.
