In 2020 Doula Canada doubled our scholarships, and offered 60% of the available spaces to persons who self-identified as racialized and/or as LGBTQ2S+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, Two Spirit). This was a part of 2019-2020 equity commitment, which will continue when our 2022-2023 scholarship openings. We encourage all persons to apply for a space with DTC in 2022!
