Human Rights Committees

Regional Human Rights Committees play an active role in the education of members, employers and communities about human rights issues.  They act as a resource to members on human rights issues, as well as a hub of activism.  These committees are established in accordance with Section 15 of the PSAC Constitution which enables the establishment of regional equity committees representing any of the four equity groups, or human rights committees, representing all of the four equity groups.
