UFCW Canada, along with Locals 1000A and Locals 175 & 633 will gather in Toronto to celebrate PRIDE on July 1, 2012. The parade will begin at 2 p.m. and there will be a UFCW 175 & 633 contingent, along with a strong presence from UFCW Local 1000A taking part in this walk. “Toronto Pride parade is the largest of its kind in Canada.

UFCW Canada marchers will meet at 2:45 p.m. at the staging location located on Bloor Street (at Ted Rogers Way, formerly called Jarvis Street).
