JOIN US! TOGETHER WE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS

Calling all PSAC North women in the North . . .

If you want to tackle issues affecting women and work for positive change, we’re your committee.

Add your voice and ideas and help make change for women in and out of the workplace.

You don’t have to be in Yellowknife to join. Our conference call meetings can easily accommodate you – no matter where you live. 

Let’s organize events and initiatives to ensure an end to violence against women, access to public not-for-profit child care, strong public services, pay equity, an end to poverty, job security and equality in everything. 

Our Mandate

The objectives of the PSAC North Regional Women’s Committee are to identify, promote and assist union actions by

  • Educating, politicizing and mobilizing women by making links between themselves, the union, the workplace, the community and equality rights

  • We do this by empowering, uniting and engaging all women to take action and move the Womens’ Rights agenda forward.

Stay connected to the issues . . . and the solutions

  • We participate in conferences, educational and training programs on Women’s issues

  • Ensure and promote representation of Women members, their issues and equality goals in the various union bodies, programs and social justice groups

  • Sit on the National Human Rights Committee and other PSAC National and Regional bodies . . . and much more.
