What is a Peer Navigator?
Peer Navigators work to provide support and aid in navigating local systems and community resources to members of the 2SLGBTQ+ community. Peer navigators also are available to provide telephone and frontline crisis support, as well as case-management for individuals and families.
While queer peer navigation is created to help queer folks in our community, resources accessed through your navigator do not neccessarily need to relate directly to your identity. You are not required to disclose gender/sexual identity to access supports from your peer navigator. Some examples of resources folks can access through their peer navigator:
- Help with grant finding/writing
- Help with immigration work & processes
- Help with food security
- So much more! We are here to help!

Hello! My name is Britney and I use She/Her pronouns! I am the new Regina-Based Queer Peer Navigator until February 19th, 2021! As the Peer Navigator I am here to offer support to any 2SLGBTQ+ or allied person. If you need support navigating services in Regina, are unsure of what resources exist, or just need someone to listen – call me!
While not counsellors, Peer Navigators will listen and can serve as a great resource to anyone facing systemic challenges or barriers related to being 2SLGBTQIAP+. Peer Navigators may also be able to connect people with options they hadn’t previously considered.
You can reach me over text or phone at 639-994-4692 or over email at email@example.com. Once we connect we can work through what you or someone close to you is experiencing and plan a way forward.
