Creating a Thriving and Inclusive Economy

The City’s Economic Development Office continues to strive to be inclusive and provide ethical and equitable services that incorporate the unique needs of our business community. To support our efforts the Economic Development Office received its Rainbow Registered Accreditation through Canada’s LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce and Tourism HR Canada’s, Rainbow Registered LGBT+ Friendly Accreditation Program.

Rainbow Registered is a national accreditation for LGBT+ friendly businesses and organizations. When you see a Rainbow Registered symbol, you know the business or organization meets a stringent set of standards to ensure LGBT+ customers feel safe, welcomed, and accepted.

All businesses are welcome to apply for the Rainbow accredited program to be recognized as a business that is market ready for the LGBT+ customer and given the right to be associated with the program’s prestigious Rainbow Registered designation mark.

The Benefits of Accreditation include:

  • Ensure LGBT+ customers feel welcome and accepted
  • Listing in the Rainbow Registered Directory
  • Rainbow Registered Welcome Kit (window decal, desk card)
  • Website badge
  • Access to Associate Member Benefits
