Exhibition Place is Rainbow Registered


Exhibition Place has received the prestigious Rainbow Registered accreditation by the Canadian Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be recognized with the Rainbow Registered Accreditation,” says Laura Purdy, general manager of Exhibition Place. “For us, this achievement is not just a recognition but a testament to our continued dedication towards inclusivity and creating safe, welcoming spaces for everyone in our community. We firmly believe in celebrating diversity and this accreditation validates our efforts and encourages us to continue making strides towards inclusivity.”

The Rainbow Registered Accreditation involves a comprehensive process that assesses businesses across various domains, including policy and procedures, communication and knowledge, and training. This process ensures that the businesses are not only talking about inclusivity but are making genuine efforts to implement it. 

Sarah Evalina, Chief Operating Officer at CGLCC, expressed her enthusiasm, We are excited to welcome Exhibition Place to the Rainbow Registered community. As the home of many of Toronto’s top festivals and events, we are thrilled to see such a large and dynamic organization demonstrate their clear commitment to 2SLGBTQI+ inclusion through successfully meeting the standards of our national 2SLGBTQI+ inclusion accreditation program. Thank you to the Exhibition Place team for their dedication to date, and we look forward to the opportunity to work together to make Canada a safer and more inclusive country for all 2SLGBTQI+ folks.”
