The Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS)

7-104 Education North, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

The Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS) brings together education, research, policy development , and community services in order to ensure that sexual and gender minorities (SGM) recognized and well served by their communities.
The Institute represents a distinct and holistic model, placing sexual and gender minority studies and services in a dynamic, interdependent relationship. Our multifaceted research allows us to not only help youth at large, but also to guide professional development and education for teachers, social workers, family physicians, psychologists, guidance counselors, and other caring professionals, enabling them to be better resources and advocates for SGM individuals and their families.
In addition, the Institute impacts policy and services for sexual and gender minorities nationally through its work with various agencies and organizations including the Office of Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, the Canadian Teachers’ Federation, and the Public Health Agency of Canada.
