Réseau Access Network and RBC are proud to host the 9th Annual Classroom Closet Conference. It is designed for all members of the educational system as well as other community members who would like to make their workplace or educational environment safe and inclusive. This workshop was inspired by the Safe Schools Act.
According to Egale’s 2011 Final Report on Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia in Canadian Schools, in schools that have made efforts to introduce LGBTQ-inclusive policies, GSAs, and even some LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum, the climate is significantly more positive for sexual and gender minority students.
Our hope is that The Classroom Closet Conference will provide conference participants with the knowledge, attitude and skills required to support and advocate for LGBTQ students, friends, family members and co-workers. Your attendance is one of that ways we can continue to make Northern Ontario a safe environment for everyone. Today is about coming together, learning, making new friends and meeting new allies
We tried to design the conference to have something for everyone — whether you are just starting to explore these issues, or are already a seasoned expert. So have fun in your workshops, listen, ask questions, and share your experiences.

Le Réseau Access Network et RBC sont fiers d’organiser la 5e conférence annuelle Placard de la classe. Elle est organisée pour tous les membres du système de l’éducation et les autres membres de la communauté qui souhaitent rendre leur milieu de travail ou de formation sécuritaire et inclusif. Cet atelier a été inspiré par la Loi sur la sécurité dans les écoles.
Selon le rapport final Égale de 2011 sur l’homophobie, la biphobie et la transphobie dans les écoles canadiennes, où ont été déployés des efforts pour mettre en œuvre des politiques incluant les LGBTQ, les AGH, et même un programme qui inclut les LGBTQ, le climat est considérablement plus positif pour les élèves en minorité sexuelle et en variance de genre.
Nous espérons que la conférence Placard de la classe permettra aux participants et participantes d’acquérir les connaissances, l’attitude et les compétences requises pour appuyer et défendre les droits des amis, membres de la famille, collègues de travail et élèves LGBTQ. Votre présence nous appuie à continuer de rendre le Nord de l’Ontario un environnement sécuritaire pour tous. Aujourd’hui, nous nous unissons, nous apprenons, lions de nouvelles amitiés et rencontrons de nouveaux alliés.
Nous avons essayé de créer une conférence qui offre un petit quelque chose à tous les participants et participantes : que vous soyez au stade d’exploration ou un expert chevronné. Donc, amusez-vous dans vos ateliers, écoutez, posez des questions et partagez vos expériences.

For some considering hepatitis treatment, mental health issues can be a major barrier if the proper supports are not available. Timely access to mental health supports can be crucial in addressing some of the side effects that can arise from treatment. Réseau ACCESS Network offers a regular psychiatric clinic as part of its HCV Treatment Program. The clinic is open to those living with Hepatitis C. Access to psychiatric services is facilitated through the HCV Treatment Nurse.
