Our Organization

The Public Service Alliance of Canada is one of Canada's largest unions. PSAC is truly a national union with members from coast to coast to coast, in every province and territory. We even have an international face with members working abroad in embassies and consulates.

The Atlantic Region represents almost 18,000 members organized in 216 locals.

PSAC members in the Atlantic are employed in large and small communities throughout the region. Most of us work for the federal government, agencies, and crown corporations and an increasing number work in the private and community services sectors. We preserve Canada's natural and historic heritage, we collect statistics for the business community, we maintain airport runways and navigation systems, we monitor fish stocks, we administer pensions and employment insurance, we respond to emergencies at airports and at sea, we help new Canadians get settled, we make sure your food is safe to eat, we support veterans and their families, we send you your tax refund and we provide a safe refuge for abused women and their children. We do all this, and more.

The Atlantic Region is serviced by four Regional Offices located in St. John's, Charlottetown, Moncton and Halifax. The staff are responsible for negotiating collective agreements, organizing new members, representing members at hearings, organizing strikes, facilitating union education and offering on-going advice and assistance to locals and regional bodies.
