PSAC offers some of the best union education courses in the Canadian labour movement.

Our program uses a popular education approach. Our courses invite members to share their knowledge, reflect on new learning, take action and change their world for the better. Participants analyze ideas, discuss new information, solve problems and practice new skills.

The result:

Greater Confidence + Solidarity + Effective Action


Positive Change + A Stronger Union + More Justice


The broad goals of the our program are defined by the Standing Education Committee of the National Board of Directors and are outlined in the National Education Policy.
