Canada Pride 2022 Human Rights Conference

Pride Winnipeg is proud to host the Canada Pride 2022 Human Rights Conference from June 1-3, 2022.

As we took time to reflect and support one another during this pandemic, we were all confronted and reminded of our communities’ resilience in times of crisis. For this edition of the Canada Pride Human Rights Conference, we have selected priority populations that cross-cut the five identified themes.

We invited folks from across the country to join our national conversation by submitting a workshop, a panel or even an activity to share with conference participants. For interested applicants, see important dates, identified themes, priority populations and the advisory committee members below. We hope to see you in June!
