IUOE Local 793 joins others in communities across Canada to celebrate Pride Month and support 2SLGBTQI+ equality and justice.
This month is a time to honour the diversity of 2SLGBTQI+ communities while acknowledging their history, hardships, and progress.
Historically, Pride gatherings emerged from the first large-scale protests for 2SLGBTQI+ rights. In Canada, the first demonstrations took place in Ottawa and Vancouver in 1971.
Local 793 is proud to advocate for 2SLGBTQI+ rights and is committed to the fight against discrimination and hate in the workplace and our communities.
