SEIU Healthcare celebrated the summer season with their Caribbean Festival BBQ in High Park. The 2nd annual event brought together SEIU members, their families and political figures to celebrate diversity and to honour the work that healthcare professionals contribute to Ontarians across the province.

The event was attended by MPP for Davenport, Jonah Schein, MP for Davenport, Andrew Cash, NDP Member of Parliament for the federal riding of Trinity-Spadina, Olivia Chow and City of Toronto councillors Anthony Perruzza and Ana Bailao.

On the menu was jerk chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs and ice cream from an ice cream truck. Children spent the afternoon playing games and doing arts and crafts with the numerous volunteers and Human Rights committee members.

SEIU Healthcare Secretary Treasurer Cathy Carroll addressed the crowd of over 500 people, thanking the hard work of SEIU’s Human Rights Committee for organizing the successful event. “Our members of SEIU are some of the most diverse and talented people I’ve ever met, I’m so proud that we have events like this that showcase that.”
