Rainbow Registered LGBT+ Friendly Accreditation Program

Not only is having LGBT+-friendly policies in your company the right thing to do – it’s also good for business. That’s why Canada’s LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce, with Tourism HR Canada, have collaborated to launch the Rainbow Registered LGBT+ Friendly Accreditation Program.

What Does it Mean to be Rainbow Registered?

Rainbow Registered is a national accreditation for LGBT+ friendly businesses and organizations. When you see a Rainbow Registered symbol, you know the business or organization meets a stringent set of standards to ensure LGBT+ customers feel safe, welcomed, and accepted.

The accreditation program grants a time-limited recognition to businesses and organizations for demonstrating compliance with the quality standard. Accredited businesses are deemed market ready for the LGBT+ customer and given the right to be associated with the program’s prestigious Rainbow Registered designation mark.

The Benefits of Accreditation

Ensure LGBT+ customers feel welcome and accepted

In addition to benefiting from guidelines that provide information and advice on ensuring LGBT+ customers feel welcome and accepted, accredited businesses will be able to demonstrate and market themselves as safe destinations for the LGBT+ market.

Listing in the Rainbow Registered directory

Accredited businesses will be listed in the Rainbow Registered directory – the national directory of businesses certified as LGBT+ friendly – and will have the opportunity to display the program’s distinguishable Rainbow Registered designation mark in their business or storefront.

Additional Benefits

  • Rainbow Registered Welcome Kit (window decal, desk card)
