The New Pride Program

Our New Pride Program supports the development of healthy relationships through:

Educating newcomers on gender diversity to introduce awareness on rights and gender equality

Promoting safe and inclusive spaces for the LGBTQ community

Fostering supportive relationships among multicultural families and gender diverse populations

The New Pride Program is presented in partnership with the Centre for Sexuality.



Be Part of Calgary's welcoming community by volunteering to support an LGBTQ + newcomer.

You will have the opportunity to explore the city, participate in social events, and learn about other cultures.

Additionally, you will guide them to find services, and help them to improve their conversational English and expand their connections.
