Who We Are

Founded in 2017, Stratford-Perth Pride is the official Pride organization of Stratford, St. Marys and Perth County, Ontario.

Over the years we’ve gone through several names including the ‘LGBTQ+ Friends and Allies of Perth County’ and ‘Infinite Pride Stratford and in June 2021 we launched our new name (Stratford-Perth Pride) with a new logo, brand and website.

We are run by a group of dedicated and passionate volunteers and as of Spring 2022 we are now a registered non-profit. 

Our Mission

Stratford-Perth Pride provides 2SLGBTQIA+ programming to make Perth County a more welcoming, accepting and inclusive community for gender and sexually diverse individuals.


To make Perth County a place where no matter who you love or how you identify, you will be safe, valued, equal and proud.

our values


Stratford-Perth Pride provides programming in an area now known as Perth County, Ontario. This land is covered by Treaty 29, also known as the Huron Tract Purchase, which was signed on July 10, 1827, by representatives of the Crown and certain Anishinaabe peoples.

Since time immemorial, this land and its waterways have been home and rightfully belongs to the Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee/Peoples of the Long House, as well as other First Nations, Inuit and Metis Peoples. 

Today, and everyday we must all remain mindful of the agreements that have been made – and broken – with Indigenous Peoples. We invite all of you to join Stratford-Perth Pride as we continuously work towards true reconciliation through peace and friendship with all who call Turtle Island home – including Two Spirit, Indigiqueer, and LGBTQ+ Indigenous Peoples.
