Ottawa Pride Parade – August 27th

The RCDSB is registered in this year’s Capital Pride Parade, which takes place on Sunday, August 27.

Anyone from RCDSB wishing to march in the parade will be asked to meet on Argyle St (in the Marcher’s Zone) at 11:30 am.  Lisa Conway is the RCDSB contact in the Marcher’s Zone.  The parade itself starts at 1:30 pm and ends at 4:00 pm.

By early next week, Amy Johnson will send a Google form out to the system for folks to sign up. We need to have a complete list of participants for an Emergency Plan.  The organizers have safety at the forefront of their planning.  Prime Minister Trudeau may be marching in the event but will not confirm with organizers until the day of.

More details such as the parade route, suggested places to park, what to bring, how to find our group if you come late will be sent out early next week.  If anyone has any questions before then, please contact Amy Johnson.

It’s exciting to have RCDSB have a presence at this event.  Thanks in advance for your help in spreading the word and ensuring the diversity and inclusion of all our students and staff is celebrated!
