Do your part to flatten the curve & protect others

Pride Toronto is looking at ways we can to continue to try and respond to the immediate/urgent needs of our communities. We will continue to update this page with community resources and COVID-19 information:

Please use Toronto Public Health for official COVID-19 Health Information and City Updates. The 519 COVID-19 Information and Updates webpage is an excellent resource for health, food, & other support services available 7 days a week. Our communities face unique challenges in this difficult time, particularly our most marginalized. Our communities face unique challenges in this difficult time, particularly our most marginalized.
