The Liberal government will be providing $1.5 million to Pride organizations across the country for increased security measures at parades.

“The funding, to be announced by Minister of Women and Gender Equality and Youth Marci Ien (Monday), is being provided to Fierté Canada Pride to distribute to local event organizers who apply for assistance,” CTV News reported.

“In mid-May, the national association of Canadian Pride organizations sent the federal government an ’emergency funding proposal’ asking for $1.5 million to help cover increased safety and security costs, stemming from concerns over a rise in anti-LGBTQ2S+ hate, violence, and threats.”
