Quadrangle has a vision to establish Newfoundland and Labrador as an inclusive, welcoming community regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, economic status and other diverse backgrounds.
Quad NL received a grant through the Investment Readiness Fund to assess opportunities to develop its community hub and social enterprise options.
In this stream, Charlie talks about how Quadangle NL brings together support for the 2SLGTBQIA+ community. There are so many ways.
The Quad’s safe community space. The existing space is new and excellent. Located at St. James United Church on Elizabeth Avenue in St. John’s, the Quad is space for people to ‘be’, hang out, participate in events, and it’s an organizational headquarters for Quadrangle NL. This space and programs exist with support from the The Jacob Puddister Memorial Foundation , Bell Let’s Talk , RBC Foundation, Monte Carlo, and United Way.
But the vision is on a larger scale, and it ties in the social enterprise opportunity: Quad space that does all of the above and includes space for people of the 2SLGTBQIA+ to rent and run their businesses - hair salon, law, services… you name it.
