Columbia Valley Pride exists within the territories of the Ktunaxa and Secwepemc Nations, and the Columbia Valley Metis Association. We are grateful to be living in these territories and are committed to the decolonization of Pride and of the land we reside in.
Servicing the East Kootenays, Columbia Valley Pride aims to empower the LGBTQ2IA+ community with an approach emphasizing intersectionality. Though our organization is small, our numbers increase each year and we're eager to see our outreach grow.
It is our hope to help foster a community that celebrates freedom of gender expression, gender identity, and sexual orientation.
Columbia Valley Pride's governing body is currently made up of 6 dedicated individuals, spanning from Canal Flats to Calgary. We're always looking for new faces - if you'd like to be a part of our mission, apply today! While we only accept new board members in May, there are many sub committees you can join year round. Whether it's planning next years Pride, new fundraisers, or thinking of ways to enhance our community, we're always looking for fresh ideas and eager volunteers.
