Saskatoon Pride Festival postponed due to COVID-19
In response to developments around COVID-19 and Saskatchewan’s ongoing state of emergency, the Board of Directors of Saskatoon Pride has decided to not host the Saskatoon Pride Festival in a physical format in June 2020.
We are working to create new digital events to keep us all connected, especially during Saskatoon Pride Festival, June 12 – 20. Our number one consideration is your safety and health. All physical Pride events are postponed until they are safe and feasible. Watch our social media for updates soon.
For more information, please read our media release

Are you a member of the gender and sexually diverse community of Saskatchewan and need support navigating Employment Insurance, the Rental Housing Supplement, tax filing and Emergency Response benefits?
Our focus is in providing support to trans and queer low-income individuals, international work and student permit holders, but we are also happy to take referral from anyone in need and will assist as we can or refer on to another community based agency.
