Programs and Services
Prideline is one of the Centre’s popular services. It offers callers peer support, information and referrals by phone, seven days per week.

Another popular service is the free one-on-one and group counselling provided by practicum students. The group sessions include a variety of workshops, coming out groups and discussion groups. All of the Centre’s programs and services are made possible by their volunteers.
