The PSAC is comprised of 15 Components and Directly Chartered Locals (DCLs). DCLs represent members employed by private employers, municipal governments and the academic sector, just to name a few.

This page is dedicated to DCLs. You can download booklets and information sheets that will help you run an effective local. We will also be posting updates on bargaining, campaigns and other information related to DCLs. After all, in the Atlantic Region, we have 18 DCLs:

In the event that the DCLs need an issue addressed at the National Board of Directors (NBoD), they do so via PSAC-Atlantic’s Regional Executive Vice-President (REVP). On the regional level, they can contact their director that represent them at the PSAC-Atlantic Regional Council. Those officers are elected at the PSAC-Atlantic Triennial Regional Convention that takes place every three years.
The current elected officials are:

Colleen Coffey, Regional Executive Vice-President
