#CBA Pride

Rainbow flagEvery year, Pride celebrations occur across Canada on different dates in various cities and jurisdictions. To celebrate the LGBTQ2SI community throughout the entire Pride season, the CBA and the CBA Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Community (SOGIC) Section hope to engage the legal community by providing resources that facilitate members supporting Pride on the dates most relevant in each region.

This initiative draws inspiration from the Ontario Bar Association’s Rainbow Tabs initiative – a printable, wearable sign of Pride.

Ways to Celebrate and Show your Support:
