About Us

Diversifying Canadian Business,
One Connection at a Time

Canada’s 2SLGBTQI+ Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC) is the only chamber of commerce uniting and advocating for the over 100,000 2SLGBTQI+ owned and operated businesses in Canada.

This group is a powerful one: they generate over $22 billion in economic activity and employ over 435,000 Canadians. Their impact on the economy is profound, but there are still barriers to accessing resources and partnerships to make Canada’s economy more inclusive. That’s where CGLCC and its network comes in.

Our Programs

Each of our programs is designed to elevate 2SLGBTQI+ businesses and foster greater diversity and inclusion across Canada’s economy.

Whether we’re connecting 2SLGBTQI+ businesses to a global network or a corporation with a vested interest in diverse procurement, we’re here to facilitate connections that can build a more inclusive Canada.

We also serve businesses looking to form more inclusive cultures or programming, offering inclusivity training and market-preparedness training for serving LGBT+ clientele. We use our 2SLGBTQI+ expertise and research to facilitate a stronger, more inclusive Canadian economy for all.

Supplier Diversity

As one of the most impactful ways we advance LGBT+ businesses’ opportunities in Canada, we certify LGBT+ businesses and connect them to the growing number of corporations looking to increase their supplier diversity. This helps Canadian LGBT+ businesses make connections, form partnerships and obtain new business while Canadian corporations benefit from diversifying their suppliers and service providers.
