A World Premiere!
Montréal Pride will organize the first edition of Canada Pride from August 10 to 20, 2017, as a nation-wide celebration of Canada’s LGBTQ movement, reaffirming the position of Montréal and of Canada as leaders in LGBTQ human rights. Montréal Pride, the largest Pride festival in the Francophone world, will host the festive and inspiring national event to welcome Canada and the world to Montréal as it marks the 375th anniversary of the city’s founding and the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation.
Unlike Montréal Pride’s annual festival, which is held over seven days, the Canada Pride program of events in 2017 will span eleven days, including two full weekends of activities. The program will include a two-day sports tournament during the first weekend of celebrations and a major national conference on LGBTTIQ2S+ human rights.
In 2017, programming for Montréal Pride will focus especially on highlighting the contributions of LGBTQ communities to the history and development of Montréal and Canada over the past 375 and 150 years, respectively.
With an impressive lineup of outdoor and free programming , the creation of a second outdoor venue — supplementing Place Émilie-Gamelin — to host larger shows and international artists, a three-day conference on the advancement of LGBTTIQA2S+ rights here and abroad, a food fair on Sainte-Catherine Street, a grandiose Community Day and a spectacular Parade for this unique edition, Canada Pride Montréal 2017 will be a bring people together more than ever. We expect an attendance of more than 2,5 million with more than 150 events over 11 days.
We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather for Canada Pride Montréal 2017 is the traditional and unceded territory of the Kanien’keha:ka (Mohawk). The island called “Montréal” is known as Tiotia:ke in the language of the Kanien’kehá:ka, and it is a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations, including the Algonquin people.
