Area Councils

PSAC Area Councils are made up of members from different locals, branches, and components, grouped within regional areas. Area Councils are the political arm of our Union - they engage with and mobilize around PSAC and Labour campaigns and come together to lobby their political representatives, raise awareness of issues affecting our members, workers and the Canadian public. Area Councils also allow for discussion, collaboration and activism across Component lines. Area Council members also work with community partners, build links with other Labour groups and send members and resolutions to PSAC Regional and National Conventions.

There are currently 8 Area Councils in BC. They are located in Vancouver, Surrey/Delta/Langley (West Fraser Valley AC), the Fraser Valley, the Okanagan, North Vancouver Island, Victoria, Northwest BC (Prince Rupert / Terrace), and Northeast BC (Prince George and area). To get involved with an Area Council, check the calendar on the main page for upcoming meetings, contact the Chairpersons/Presidents at the link below, or call your Regional Office.
