Pride Parade

Bloor Street and Ted Rogers Way

Bring sunscreen, water (to drink AND to squirt) and get ready to march, dance and celebrate the Pride Parade! We do not have a float this year; we will be at the parade check-in area for 12:30 p.m. where we will be marching with the OFL. The OFL has 6 seats for accessibility. Please notify the RAA if you would like to participate pride@opseu.org.

There are washrooms for marchers along Bloor St., and water is being made available along the parade route by Pride Toronto.

Pride BBQ hosted by OPSEU/SEFPO Region 5

4 p.m. (or immediately following the Pride Parade)
OPSEU/SEFPO Membership Centre, 31 Wellesley St. E.

What is the best thing after spending an afternoon in the sweltering heat? Air conditioning! However, burgers and hot dogs are a close second, and the BBQ has both. Join fellow OPSEU/SEFPO members, their friends and families at the OPSEU/SEFPO Membership Centre as we wind down the weekend’s festivities.

Happy Pride!
