An introduction to the PSAC for Indigenous Members
This fall, PSAC is holding a PSAC National Indigenous People’s Circle (NIPC) course for Aboriginal, Inuit and Métis PSAC Ontario members on October 27th and 28th, 2018 in Thunder Bay, ON. See call out letter here.

- how to become more active in the PSAC through local, regional and national structures.
Participants will have the opportunity to meet and work with PSAC members from the Ontario region, including Sister Sheila Karasiewicz, Indigenous Members Representative on the PSAC Ontario Region Council, and Brother Peter Cloidt, Ontario Male Representative on the PSAC’s National Indigenous Peoples Circle.
