Pride Toronto is excited to be taking a more sustainable approach to its annual Parade with the goal to eventually host a zero-waste Pride festival in the future. To do our part in reducing the carbon footprint of the festival weekend, we are strongly encouraging Parade contingents, sponsors, partners, and community members to consider marching in the annual Parade over the use of registering vehicles and floats. This eco-friendly approach is not only better for our environment but also allows us to celebrate the origins of Pride Toronto that started as a protest. Costumes, themed collectives, and creativity is highly encouraged. Should registering a vehicle or float still be preferred, we are introducing new requirements and regulations that must be abided by to participate in the Parade. Details include:

1. Vehicles must either be:
A. A certified hybrid vehicle.
B. A certified e-powered vehicle.
C. A vehicle with a diesel engine that will exclusively use biodiesel for the duration of
the Parade (this includes arrival and departure).

2. Trailers must fit within the measurements outlined in 10.2 in the Parade Terms & Conditions.
Please ensure that your vehicle hitch ball is the correct weight and size to pull the respected
trailer.

3. Proof of compliance to the new regulations must be provided to Pride Toronto no later than
June 1, 2023. We want to thank everyone for adjusting to our e-friendly Parade. We are far from perfect but will continue to work towards a greener Parade each year. If you have ways that Pride Toronto can be greener, please feel free to contact us at parade@pridetoronto.com.

We hope participants will be excited to help Pride Toronto continue working towards limiting our impact on the environment.
