Pride is Coming!

In Local 401’s Mission Statement, we affirm that OUR UNION IS A PROGRESSIVE ONE!

We have built our foundation on our members’ ongoing struggle for fairness, equality, and social justice – collectively striving for dignity and respect.


UFCW Local 401’s is committed to continuing our fight for the fair and equal treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and other human rights issues.


Participation in Pride is one of our most visible celebrations of that commitment.

The parade starts at 11 am, Sunday, September 4, 2022, at Barclay Parade near Eau-Claire Market, goes down Stephen Avenue and ends on 9 Street SW. 

If you’re ready to help celebrate diversity at this fantastic event, please register by Thursday, August 25, 2022, so we know how many people to plan for and can keep you apprised of all the relevant details! 


We will send additional details to everyone who registers closer to the date.


  • If you already have a Pride shirt from a previous year, please wear it! 
  • We have limited shirt supplies, so shirts will only be available for members and staff who attend.
  • Please join us at the staging area as we prepare the float and take our place in the parade.
  • There will be activities and booths at the end of the parade route in Fort Calgary for everyone to enjoy!
