Labour Day parade & social – Toronto

| Staples - outside

Be part of the Labour Day Parade, the annual celebration of workers and injured workers. Time to get together with our friends in the labour movement, enjoy the outside, socialize and have fun.

After the parade, everyone is invited back to the Steelworkers Hall, 25 Cecil Street, for food and live music.

Join us at 9:00 a.m. in front of Staples, northeast corner of Armoury St and University Ave (across from the Ministry of Labour at 400 University Ave.) We will be joining the parade behind the Steelworkers this year.
