Too many people still do not have spaces where they feel safe or welcome due to their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, ethnicity, age, or physical abilities. Ottawa Capital Pride understands that we must be engaged partners with every member of our community, and ensure that diverse voices are part of the movement. more
The mission of the Ottawa Capital Pride organization is to create an environment for advocacy, education, and the fostering of a strong and vibrant Rainbow Community within the Nation’s Capital region. It does so through the annual Fierté dans la Capital(e) Pride festival, where it welcomes everyone to participate, celebrate, and experience being a part of the Rainbow Community.
Through the annual Fierté dans la Capital(e) Pride Festival, the newly-formed Ottawa Capital Pride organization walks the talk in creating an open and respectful space for the Rainbow Community to advocate on issues of concern.
In January 2015, a group of key leaders from within the Rainbow Community came together to ensure that celebrations for the 30th anniversary of the Ottawa Capital Pride festival take place to resounding success.
Initial meetings resulted in a strong partnership between the new Ottawa Capital Pride organization and the Bank Street Business Improvement Area (BIA). This collaboration ties together the new organization’s governance role and festival operations acumen with solid financial oversight by an experienced partner familiar with one of the Festival’s main partners, the City of Ottawa.
The new governance structure consists of the Community Advisory Committee which is responsible for overall direction and policies, and the Festival Operations Committee which is responsible for the execution of the annual Fierté dans la Capital(e)Festival.
