PSAC is committed to recognizing and celebrating the contributions of union members from lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, transgender and transsexual communities

PSAC is thrilled that the House of Commons adopted a bill that will enshrine trans rights into Canadian law. The bill was passed at Third Reading, but will still need to go through the Senate. Bill C-16 adds gender identity and gender expression as prohibited grounds of discrimination under the Canadian Human Rights Act. It also adds gender identity and gender expression to the list of distinguishing characteristics of “identifiable groups” protected by the hate speech provisions in the Criminal Code.

PSAC is a proud ally in the struggle for the advancement of the human rights of gay and lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in Canada. Eradicating homophobia and transphobia in the workplace and bargaining and lobbying for the full protection of our GLBT members’ human rights are ongoing priorities for the PSAC. The current, concerted attacks on unions undermine the struggle for human rights. Together, we can work to fend off such attacks by championing the many victories we’ve gained for our members.
