As the number of reported cases of the coronavirus rise in Canada, it is important that PSAC take precautions and act proactively to safeguard the health and safety of our members, as well as the Canadian public.

In keeping with recommendations from both local and national health authorities, the union has made the difficult decision to suspend activities that would require a large gathering of members.

The office of the Regional Executive Vice-President for BC will be reaching directly out to all BC Regional Convention delegates, observers, and guests shortly to ensure they are aware of this development and we are working with our contractors and the venue towards rescheduling the Convention for a later date.

Should additional events be postponed, PSAC will be in touch directly with any participants that have registered for events and will update members on scheduling changes.

To ensure the safety of our members, we also ask that smaller gatherings like local meetings, committee meetings, and regional activities be conducted remotely via teleconference or video conference wherever possible, or postponed.

We will be updating our national and regional websites, social media, as well as sending information by email as the situation develops.
