NEW! Pride Bursary! 

In an effort to assist OSSTF Toronto members with engaging in or continuing the efforts to raise awareness about 2SLGBTQIAP+  issues and their impact on our daily lives both locally and globally, we are offering TTBU, OTBU, and PSSP members the opportunity to apply for an annual bursary.

Groups and/or events which raise awareness, consciousness, or encourage activism pertaining to 2SLGBTQIAP+ issues may receive funding of up to $100 per worksite, per year.

As each TDSB worksite is limited to one application per year, members are encouraged to coordinate their applications through their Branch President.

Applications will be accepted on first come, first served, rolling basis until May 19th, 2023 or until the Committee’s allotted funds are allocated*.  Members are encouraged to apply early.

NEW! Pride Awards!
