• ELIGIBLE expenses include production costs, content fees, artist/speaker/performer fees, efforts to make your event more accessible.
• INELIGIBLE expenses include alcohol, staff and administrative fees, and decorations.
• The intent of the Bursary is to help CREATE new events that add value to the festival or to help BUILD ON existing events that may already be part of the festival.
• All successful applicants will be required submit a final report no later than 30 days following their event in order to retain their Bursary funding.

New Requirement for All Events

Regina Pride Inc. now requires that all Community Event Partners participate in “Positive Space Network” training, provided by the UR Pride Centre. Training sessions will be provided at no cost to you and will help ensure that all events taking place during the Queen City Pride Festival meet the demand for safer, braver spaces in our community.

— For events being hosted by an individual: the individual must take part in training.
— For events being hosted by a group/organization: a minimum of two people (who are involved in planning and present at the event) must take part in training.
— An individual can only represent a single group/organization at training
—–Example: “Samantha” is hosting Pride events for both the “Queer Badminton League” and “GSA Chess Club” but cannot represent both organizations at training. The “Queer Badminton League” and “GSA Chess Club” will have to send at least 2 people without overlap.
