What is Bill 7?
The Award is named after the 1986 Ontario legislation that extended the protection of the Human Rights Code to lesbians and gays. Since its inception in 1988, we have been working hard to increase the number and size of the scholarships available. Last year we were able to award 10 scholarships of $2000 each. In total so far, over $100,000 has been presented to students in the queer community. All the money has been raised through donations.
