Pride in Georgina

In June of each year the Town of Georgina raises the Rainbow flag at the Civic Centre to proclaim Pride Month and to recognize the challenges and celebrate the history, courage, diversity, and contributions of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Questioning, and Two-Spirit Communities (LGBTQ2S+). The Town is committed to addressing the unique challenges still facing the LGBTQ2S+ communities to build a more inclusive and equitable Town.

Truth and Reconciliation

The Town of Georgina would like to acknowledge the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation as our close neighbour and friend, one with which we strive to build a cooperative and respectful relationship.

We also recognize the unique relationship the Chippewas have with the lands and waters of this territory. They are the water protectors and environmental stewards of these lands, and we join them in these responsibilities.

Visit the Government of Canada website to learn more about how it’s working to advance reconciliation and renew the relationship with Indigenous peoples, based on recognition of rights, respect, cooperation and partnership. Visit the Town of Georgina’s Truth and Reconciliation page for Land Acknowledgement and resources.
