By Céline Ahodékon Greetings Brothers and Sisters, I hope your week is going well! Just a friendly reminder that Saturday, June 27 is Canadian Multiculturalism Day. In fact, Canada was built and continues to be built upon immigration. Each year, thousands of immigrants from around the globe land in Canada in search of a better life for themselves and their families. They bring with them their beliefs, religions and cultures. In turn, these traditions enrich the mosaic of Canadian society.

As we've done over the past few years, PSAC BC will be hosting info booths at community events across the province over the summer.  We'll be raising the profile of our union, talking to the public and other PSAC members about our work as federal public sector workers, the effects of cuts to federal public service and PSAC's We Are All Affected and Healthy Workplaces campaigns. These events are always fun, and are a great way to meet your fellow union members and members of the public.
