Labour Day Parade 2017

Step Up and Speak Out!

March in solidarity with colleagues from ETT, ETFO, OSSTF, OECTA, and CUPE, and friends from other labour locals, in Toronto's 2017 Labour Day Parade on Monday, September 4, 2017.

ETT members are asked to meet in Section 6 (on Centre Avenue, just north of Armory Street) at 9:00 a.m. The parade starts promptly at 9:30 a.m.

Limited parade apparel, food tickets, and wristbands (which will allow marchers to enter the CNE grounds) will be distributed to registered participants at the meeting place before the parade starts.

Please march with us and then join us after the parade for refreshments.


Please register online by Friday, September 1, 2017.

A limited number of t-shirts will be distributed to attendees, by order of registration, before the parade. Please be advised that sizes are limited.

Please register online to indicate your size preference.

The sizes available are: Small, Medium, Large, XL, XXL, and XXXL. (Children's sizes are not available.)

Only attendees that have registered online by the deadline (September 1, 2017) and have received a confirmation email will receive t-shirts and wristbands.

No exceptions!


Please be advised that drink and food tickets are very limited. Registered participants and guests who march the parade route will be given priority.

Attendees that arrive at the CNE gates without marching may not receive refreshment tickets.
