Toronto Pride Parade

On June 25, staff from across Toronto Community Housing, including from The Centre and the Pride Network, will be marching together in the Toronto Pride parade to demonstrate their support for the 2SLGBTQ+ community. Maybe we'll see you there?

The Centre for Advancing the Interests of Black People was established in 2021 to lead the implementation of Toronto Community Housing's Confronting Anti-Black Racism (CABR) Strategy.

As one of Toronto Community Housing's employee networks, the Pride Network is an inclusive group of volunteers that supports 2SLGBTQ+ employees and allies to bring their whole selves to work, to achieve their full potential and deliver excellent public service.
