Construction stakeholders get set for Pride Month

Construction stakeholders get set for Pride Month
TORONTO SOCIETY OF ARCHITECTS — Members of the Toronto Society of Architects (TSA) and Carpenters’ Local 27 taking part in the 2022 Toronto Pride Parade.

TORONTO — It’s Pride Month in Ontario and construction industry associations and groups are getting ready to celebrate the 2SLGBTQI+ community and learn how to be good allies.

While Pride Month runs through all of June, one of the big events in Toronto this month is the annual Pride Parade which will be held Sunday, June 25 at 2 p.m. The 42nd annual event is expected to draw over 200,000 marchers, and 2.4 million spectators.

Representatives from EllisDon are planning to March in Pride parades in several major Canadian cities, including Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto and is also aiming to continue flying Pride flags over its site trailers across the country.

“Several of the representatives from our ERG, which goes by PEACE (Proud Employees for Allyship, Community and Education), will also be attending industry specific (and adjacent) events to extend our network within the existing LGBTQ2S+ network so that we can learn how best we can help to create safe and inclusive spaces wherever we can – but especially in our industry,” said Rory Smith, marketing manager with EllisDon Tech and Digital, in an email to the Daily Commercial News.

The Carpenters’ Regional Council and the Toronto Society of Architects (TSA) will also be marching in the parade once again this year. TSA already held an event on Supplier Diversity as part of their Pride initiatives and have a Queer Space Trivia Night planned for June 6 in Toronto.

PCL offices across North America will also be recognizing Pride Month.

“Each of our respective offices have different events planned, including initiatives such as lunch and learns and guest speaker sessions on topics such as Power and Privilege and Gender and Sexuality,” said Shane Jones, media relations, PCL Constructors. “Celebrations are planned with music and prize draws and giveaways provided by local LGBTQ+ businesses/events.”

The Daily Commercial News will provide coverage throughout Pride Month.
