Public Service Pride Week Events

In the federal public service, we celebrate Pride!

The Fifth Annual Public Service Pride Week takes place from August 21 to 25, 2023.

In light of the alarming increase in hate and discrimination towards 2SLGBTQIA+ communities, particularly targeting our transgender, non-binary and gender-diverse colleagues, celebrating Pride in the public service takes on an even greater significance.

Employees from all walks of life will come together to honour and recognize the contributions of the 2SLGBTQIA+ communities and allies in the federal public service.

During this Pride Week, the Canada School of Public Service is hosting a series of key events, including the Public Service Pride Awards, to mark this year's theme "Taking Action to Create a More Inclusive Public Service."

During the events hosted by the School, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about important issues, including access to safe inclusive washrooms, name and gender marker change in Government of Canada systems, intersectionality and allyship awareness, and the history of the LGBT Purge. In addition to these events, other federal organizations will host independently organized events that will be open to all public servants.

This event series is presented in partnership with the Public Service Pride Network.


Additional events in this series will be added to this page and our main Events page as they are confirmed.
