We promote union actions on issues affecting Aboriginal members by: 

  • Educating, politicizing and mobilizing Aboriginal members by making links between themselves, the union, the workplace and the community.
  • Empowering, uniting and engaging Aboriginal members to take action and move the Human Rights Agenda forward
  • Encouraging networking and open communication among Aboriginal members, the PSAC National Human Rights Committee and other PSAC National/Regional bodies.

Join our growing team

We participate in conferences, education and training programs on issues that affect Aboriginal Peoples. 

We are relied upon for representation of Aboriginal members, 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. 

Make a difference

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

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 racism. 

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