Sisters and Brothers,

The Liberal government recently introduced Bill C-27, An Act to amend the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985.  This bill will allow for the creation of target benefit pension plans and is an attack on retirement security.  The Conservatives threatened this type of legislation, but now the Liberal government is actually pursuing it.

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.

Our workshop included the following sessions:

1 - Poverty and Homelessness - Wanda Loder – Salvation Army Family Resource Centre

2 - Interactive presentation that focuses on empathy and understanding for women in Abusive Relationships (REV) - Lori Oram - Executive Director Road to End Violence

3 - Self Defence demonstration, exercise tips - Jade Josiah & Spencer Price - Phillips School of Tae Twon Do

4 - Presentation on “The benefits of Yoga/Meditation and Relaxation”.  Tara Roseann Mouland – Just Breath Studio
