The Public Service Alliance of Canada's 2022 National Triennial Convention will now be held virtually.
PSAC’s National Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to hold the 2022 PSAC National Triennial Convention virtually. PSAC’s national convention is unlike any other event within our union, bringing together close to 900 PSAC members from communities across Canada. The decision to hold the convention virtually was grounded in protecting the health and safety of our members and staff and protecting their communities and families when they return home.
The pandemic has re-written the playbook for PSAC’s Nineteenth National Convention. The business of this convention will set the course for a shorter – but critically important – two-year window of opportunity instead of the usual three-year cycle.
The lives of PSAC members have changed so much since our last convention, and that means the work of our union must change too. We will address the many issues that the pandemic has brought to the forefront, including economic, social and racial inequities and other injustices. With so many members regularly working remotely, we will explore new ways to engage, organize, mobilize and support our membership.
We will adopt a budget and important resolutions that will guide our efforts to build a stronger union. And we will also look outward as we recommit to using our union’s strength to support the rebuilding of a more just society and communities that are free from racism and all forms of discrimination.
PSAC members in good standing may attend the Convention as observers. Registration will open for observers on March 14, 2022.
We are optimistic that we will be able to return to more in-person events in the near future, and look forward to seeing one another again, in-person, as soon as safely possible.
