Our directory lists health, legal, and social service providers as well as programs that have expressed a commitment to providing competent and welcoming care to LGBTQ parents, prospective parents, and their children.

While the emphasis is on listings within the greater Toronto area, it includes listings from across Ontario.

Many families are unsure where to start to find LGBTQ competent lawyers, family doctors, fertility clinics, adoption professionals, doulas, midwives, or child care workers. This directory allows LGBTQ people to search for providers within their geographic area who have experience working with our communities.

Rainbow Health Ontario provides a similar directory which includes only health and social service providers across Ontario.
