Education program

The PSAC is proud to offer its members a union education program that ranks among the best and most comprehensive within the Canadian labour movement. Our various courses provide members with learning opportunities to develop knowledge, skills, and personal confidence. Union education encourages participation and promotes mutual respect and understanding between members and the union leadership. A trained membership is an active membership and active members build a strong union.

The PSAC-TBS Joint Learning Program (JLP) is a negotiated provision in the collective agreements covering PSAC members employed by Treasury Board. The program offers sessions on topics such as interpreting the collective agreement, union management consultation, anti-harassment and anti-discrimination. Contact the Atlantic PSAC JLP Regional Field Coordinators for further information.

The Atlantic Region of the Public Service Alliance of Canada is pleased to invite both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal members from the four Atlantic Provinces to apply for a five-day in-residence course called Unionism on Turtle Island.  The purpose of the training is to build meaningful, long-term relationships with Aboriginal peoples inside and outside of our workplaces, with the aim of both supporting the decolonization of Aboriginal peoples and increasing Aboriginal peoples’ representation at work and in the union.
