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