About

The Pride Centre of Edmonton provides a non-judgmental, welcoming space where people of all attractions, identities, and expressions can be themselves, find support, meet new people, and be part of a caring community. Under our roof is a safe space that welcomes every individual who walks through the doors. We offer resources, education, volunteer opportunities, counselling, and a whole host of activities. We also organize programs such as support groups, social events, and educational seminars to help improve the social, mental, and physical health of our community.

Our Mission

The mission of the Pride Centre of Edmonton is to provide supports that respond to the needs of people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions, and of the people in their lives.

Our Vision

We envision a strong and vibrant community of Edmontonians who ensure belonging for everyone and who take pride in diversity.

Our Core Values
  • We are self-aware and we respect the weight and consequences of our actions
  • We create safe spaces
  • We are collaborative
  • We are intentional and responsive to ensure our programs and services are always relevant
  • We are accountable and transparent

Our registered charitable organization does not charge fees for any of its programs and services. The Pride Centre is open to everyone: gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, intersex, queer, questioning, 2-spirit, asexual (GLBTTIQQ2SA) people and our straight-allied friends who are supportive of the community.

More than 1,000 people come through the doors of the Pride Centre every month. We have over 20 active weekly and monthly community-aimed programs operating on a drop-in basis. The Centre also presents annual events: Queer Youth Prom, Queer Women and Trans Festival, Pride Gala, and the Hops and Whiskey fundraiser. It is a proud partner in Edmonton’s Pride Festival, Edmonton’s Drop-In Single Session Counselling initiative, Edmonton’s Suicide Prevention Strategy, and the Rainbow Youth Alliance of Edmonton.
