The PSAC North Regional Council is our highest decision-making body that brings together duly elected or appointed representatives from all three territories.
The Regional Executive Vice-President (REVP North) chairs the Regional Council and is the political voice for the PSAC in the Yukon, NWT and Nunavut.
Committees are also an important part of our structure. There are 8 committees in each territory: Aboriginal Peoples, Access, Pride, Women's, Racially Visible, Health & Safety, Youth and the Regional Alliance Facilitators Network.
The North Regional Council is composed of the chairs of each committee in the North. All positions on the North Regional Council are elected from among the membership. The Regional Executive Vice President is a full-time paid position. All other members of the council work in jobs represented by the union and serve the union as volunteers. In addition to chairing the North Regional Council, the REVP represents the North on the Alliance Executive Committee, the body that runs the union nationally.
The Regional Councils meets at least three times a year to strategize on issues that affect PSAC members in the North.
PSAC North's Regional Council's role, as defined in the PSAC North By-Laws, is to:
- Manage the business of PSAC North between its Triennial Conventions; and
- Establish regulations to guide the operations of PSAC North.
Read the Bylaws in this section of the website that govern Regional Council.
PSAC North Regional Committees help to guide our union and protect the interests of our members. Many of today’s leaders developed their skills, abilities and talents on a committee. They not only educated themselves but became an invaluable resource to local members, components and PSAC National.
If you are passionate about one of the issues below, you will find a warm welcome awaits you. Activists are the heart of our union – of any union – and your involvement will help ensure that our union and the labour movement continue to thrive.
Contact your PSAC Regional Office and let them know that you want to get involved.
