CFN Attends Calgary Outlink's Heart of Excellence Launch Party

Calgary Outlink is the LGBTQ+ community hub for YYC providing peer support, information, education, and resources to LGBTQ+ Calgarians. Calgary Outlink's Heart of Excellence is an awards ceremony and gala fundraiser. It will honour outstanding individuals in Calgary's LGBTQ+ community by paying tribute to their contribution to community service, leadership, business, arts, and mentorship in Alberta.The Heart of Excellence awards hopes to inspire LGBTQ+ youth and community members to make an incredibly vibrant LGBTQ+ community within our extraordinary accepting city.

CFN is currently exclusively partnering with Calgary Outlink for the New Canadians Resiliency Project. This project aims to strengthen LGBTQ New Canadians’ resiliency, while helping them avoid the challenges associated with being LGBTQ and new to Canada. It facilitates belonging with Calgary's LGBTQ community; engagement with immigrant serving organizations; and creates successful integration into the Calgary Community. The project is designed to increase the number of supportive connections in client lives and produce greater feelings of acceptance in the community.
