SERVING A DIVERSE MEMBERSHIP IN A VAST REGION Welcome! PSAC North is Canada’s largest union North of 60, representing more than 13,000 members in the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. We span a landmass equal to all western provinces put together, plus Ontario. Our members live in larger urban centers as well as small, isolated communities without road access. Our headquarters is in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, with regional offices in Whitehorse and Iqaluit. Our members work for a variety of employers, including federal, territorial and municipal governments, non-profit organizations and the private sector. We support members to achieve better pay, safe working conditions, employment security, fair treatment and respect in the workplace. Most northern members belong to the one of three northern components of the PSAC: the Nunavut Employees Union, the Yukon Employees Union or the Union of Northern Workers. These three organizations are unique within the PSAC family because they are regionally based. Many other northern members, notably those who work for the federal government, belong to PSAC components that are based outside the North, most often in Ottawa.
