    What you should know

  • Look for the Unifor shirts and flags in the Marshaling Area - Cogswell Street from North Park to Robie St.  
  • Parking is limited, and traffic is expected, so you may want to ride share or plan to arrive early.
  • Our space in the parade is #4 so we will be near the front of the line.
  • The parade begins at 2:00 p.m. Please arrive anytime between 1:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.
  • T-shirts and other swag may be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Please bring your own water, sunscreen, and snacks.
  • Dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather. We have experienced intense heat and pouring rain in previous years – so watch the weather report and come prepared!
  • This will be a 2.5 km parade route and our group is a walking group only – we will not have a vehicle present.

Notes from Halifax Pride:

  • The Moment of Silence will commence at 2:45 pm. At that time, all vehicles and marchers must stop and be silent for one minute.
  • Entrants are prohibited from throwing candy, promotional material, or any objects at parade spectators along the parade route (pass objects hand-to-hand)

For any questions related to the parade, please contact @email.

Show your pride and support for the LGBTQ+ community with our new line of Pride Swag including a new t-shirt chosen by our regional committee!

Our union-made wearable materials, including tees and caps, as well as buttons, flags and posters, promote equity and workers' rights.

This year, in addition to the Pride and Trans flags, a Progress flag is available to order.

By proudly displaying these items, you're not only showing support for the LGBTQ+ community but also showing that you stand for equality and fairness for all.

Because of the late notice, Locals are advised to get their orders in as quickly as possible, leaving at least 1 week’s notice to send out orders.
