Aboriginal issues

PSAC supports all Aboriginal Peoples in their struggle for full access to all human rights and fundamental freedoms. We strongly believe that those freedoms include the right to preserve and strengthen their own political, economic, legal and cultural traditions and institutions.

The PSAC National Aboriginal Peoples' Network:

  • helps our members and our union make gains and fight for the rights of all our Network members
  • was created by a 2003 PSAC convention resolution
  • invites all PSAC members who self-identify as First Nation, Inuit and/or Métis to join the network

The Atlantic members of the National Aboriginal Peoples’ Circle are:
