Your contributions have sent a clear message to the community that your organizations support equality, diversity, and promoting human rights. We are very grateful for your support and look forward to working with you for our 2019 Pride Winnipeg Festival.

Sponsor Testimonies

TD is proud to be the premier sponsor of Pride Winnipeg for the past 9 years. TD recently launched The Ready Commitment, our new Global Corporate Citizenship platform, which is targeting $1 billion in total by 2030 towards community giving. It is helping open doors to a more inclusive and sustainable tomorrow where everyone, no matter what, has confidence in what tomorrow brings and feels connected to their community. Our commitment to connected communities builds on our long history of supporting the LGBTQ2+ community. TD strives to ensure that everyone feels included and welcome, and that their voices are being heard and that is why we support over 160 LGBTQ2+ community initiatives and over 80 Pride festivals across North America each year.

As the Street Team Coordinator for Recycle Everywhere, I am responsible for sending my team to almost 300 events a year. Pride Festival Winnipeg stands out as one of the most organized, thoughtful, and accommodating event teams with which I interact. My team loves working the Pride Festival and participating in the parade – it’s one of our more popular events! It is clear that recycling and environmental sustainability are a priority and we are so happy to help support those goals. We look forward to continuing our very positive relationship in the years to come!
