We March to celebrate diversity & inclusivity within our communities and the 2SLBGTQ+ community—we March for Liberation for our teammates, colleagues, friends, and families!

The Canadian Olympic Committee, Canadian Paralympic Committee and You Can Play are leading the March for advocacy, allyship, and authentic representation!

Join us for this 1-hour virtual lunch and learn with Kurt Weaver from You Can Play to explore the history and culture of the 2SLGBTQ+ community and learn the importance of being an ally supporting all athletes and creating safe and diverse spaces for all those who love sports.
