Indigenous issues

PSAC supports all Indigenous 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:

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.
