Saanich Fair Volunteers Needed

Hi everyone, We really need your help!!

The Victoria Area Council is looking for volunteers who live and work in the South Island (no travel costs) to staff our booth at the Saanich Fair this labour day weekend. The fair runs from Saturday August 31 to Monday September 2.

We are looking for members to enjoy the fair and work a shift of 3 to 4 hours. The work is easy and during your shift we ask that you engage with the public and members answering questions and telling them about the PSAC and all the good work of federal public sector workers.

The Victoria Area Council will pay for members entry into the fair as well as provide a stipend for food.

Please contact Patricia Martin @ if you or some of your members can volunteer some time.

This is a great opportunity for your local or committee to show your support for the Area Council. We are also looking for any component or local swag items that can be handed out to the public and members.

Trish Martin, President, PSAC - Victoria Area Council


Solidarity with Commissionaires in Ontario!

PSAC represents 400 Commissionaires working on Vancouver Island and in Prince Rupert. Commissionaires who provide security services for the Canadian Forces Base in Kingston are currently on strike, fighting for better wages and paid sick leave. Take a moment to show some solidarity with fellow members and help them get the respect they deserve! Send an email today.
