We’re innovating this year: same phenomenal energy, smaller carbon footprint! We will carry a giant Canadian Pride flag, while our Embassy hybrid vehicle, decorated with the colours of the Canadian Pride, will lead the foreign missions section of the Parade.
We need volunteers to carry the giant flag and a portable banner, as well as to put together a fun playlist to dance to. T-shirts will be available for all participants – don’t forget to send us the numbers of your party and required t-shirt sizes.
Willing to join and/or to volunteer? Please register by May 30 with cristina.faessler@international.gc.ca

Cette année, nous innovons : même énergie phénoménale, mais une empreinte environnementale réduite! Nous porterons un drapeau géant de la Fierté gay du Canada, tandis que la voiture hybride de notre Ambassade, décorée des couleurs de la Fierté gay canadienne, ouvrira la marche des missions étrangères.
Nous avons besoin de volontaires pour porter le drapeau géant, une bannière et pour créer une compilation amusante pour danser. Nous aurons également des t-shirts pour tous les participants; n’oubliez pas de nous envoyer le nombre de personnes faisant partie de votre groupe et la taille des t-shirts requis.
Envie de vous joindre à nous et/ou de participer comme volontaires? Inscrivez-vous d’ici au 30 mai auprès de cristina.faessler@international.gc.ca

Quest’anno, innoviamo: stessa vivacità, ma con un impatto ambientale ridotto! Sfileremo a piedi portando una bandiera gigante mentre la macchina ibbrida dell’Ambasciata appositamente decorata aprirà la sezione dedicata alle rappresentanze estere.
Abbiamo bisogno di volontari per portare le bandiere e per compilare una playlist per ballare. Avremme anche delle magliette per tutti i partecipanti – non dimenticate di mandarci il numero di partecipanti nel vostro gruppo e la taglia delle magliette richieste.
Avete voglia di venire e/o di partecipare come volontari? Iscrivetevi entro il 30 maggio scrivendo a cristina.faessler@international.gc.ca
