International Women’s Day Conference

MEDIA ADVISORY         March 7, 2014


International Women’s Day Conference


Halifax, NS –  The Public Service Alliance of Canada’s IWD Organizing Committee made up of volunteers of Federal Government Departments is excited to offer an educational program geared towards this year’s theme: INSPIRING CHANGE; Women’s Equality. Keynote speaker will be NDP MP for Halifax, Megan Leslie.


For IWD 2014, PSAC is calling on the federal government to stop the attacks on women’s rights to full employment and decent work.


But despite the attacks, we also have something to celebrate: the strength and courage of PSAC sisters have resulted in many victories over the last 35 years.  In the past year, we won pay equity for our sisters working at Canada Post, and we forced the employer to accommodate the child care needs of parents at the Canada Border Services Agency.



WHEN: 9:00 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, March 7, 2014

WHERE: Holiday Inn Harbourview Hotel

101 Wyse Road

Dartmouth, NS

Media and Nova Scotia women from Federal Departments, Agencies, Crown Corporations, the Military, the Public Service Alliance of Canada and their retirees are invited to attend this year’s event.
