The objective of the PSAC Family Care Policy is to remove one of the barriers which prevents Delegates from participating fully in Union activities and which provides for the reimbursement of family care expenses. A copy of the policy is available on the PSAC website here.

On-site childcare is intended to remove a barrier to delegate participation at the Conference and is provided only for those who could not otherwise attend, had the service not been available. Requests must be received no later than Friday, September 6, 2024.

If there are any requests by participants, on-site childcare will be provided at the Conference for the activities outlined in the agenda.
