Its’ time for our labour family to gather and celebrate! Its’ time to march for good jobs, justice and fairness for all.

The parade will start at 9:30am sharp, from Queen St & University Avenue and march to Lamport Stadium after greeting the IATSE Local58 picket on Dufferin Street at Liberty.


There will be much to look forward to at the Stadium:

music, children’s activities, food trucks and a beer tent for those who are thirsty.

Thanks to our affiliates stepping up to make this a fabulous experience for our labour families.
