We promote union actions on issues affecting members with accessibility issues by: 

• educating, politicizing and mobilizing members with disabilities by making links between themselves, the

union, the workplace and the community.

• Empowering, uniting and engaging members with disabilities to take action and move the Human Rights

Agenda forward.

• Encouraging networking and open communication among members with disabilities, the PSAC National Human Rights Committee and other PSAC National/Regional bodies.

Stay Connected to the issues ... and the solutions

We participate in conferences, education and training programs on issues that affect members with disabilities. 

We are relied upon for representation of members with disabilities, their issues and equality goals in the various union bodies, programs and social justice groups.

We sit on the National Human Rights Committee and other PSAC National and Regional bodies … and much more.

Learn and take action

Some of our work is focused on reviewing, discussing and making recommendations on issues, policies, strategies and initiatives that affect members with disabilities.

We also keep our eye on legislation, provisions or practices that are discriminatory and recommend union policies, programs or actions that will end and redress the discrimination and ableism. 

Join our committee and pursue your area of interest. There is room for everyone who wants to make a difference. We welcome your contribution!
