In 2023 alone, Canada has seen a surge in anti-2SLGBTQIA+ hate motivated attacks through vandalism of Pride flags in peoples homes, schools in Nova Scotia, and Halifax, and anti-2SLGTBQIA+ protests at a children's drag story event in Montreal. In April 2023, the township of Norwich, Ontario voted to exclude pride and other non-civic flags from being displayed on municipal property. In the same month, a youth-led anti-trans group called Save Canada disrupted an International Day of Pink event being held at a local school in Ontario that was commemorating North America’s 2SLGBTQIA+ civil rights movement known as the Stonewall Riots

“More anti-LGBT+ demonstration events have already been recorded in Canada so far this year than in all of 2021 and 2023 is on track to exceed 2022.”

In the face of rising hate, violence, abuse and attacks on the human rights of 2SLGTBQIA+ communities, we need urgent action to prevent hate from gaining more traction in Canada.

An earlier version of this article erroneously reported Norfolk County voted to exclude pride and other non-civic flags from being displayed on municipal property. This was incorrect. Norwich Township voted to remove pride and other non-civic flags from its property. We apologize to Norfolk County for the error.
