Monday, June 15, 2020

This National Public Service Week— June 14 to 20—PSAC is celebrating and honouring the critical role of Canada’s federal public service workers. Never have their important contributions been highlighted so starkly than by the COVID-19 pandemic.  

PSAC members—over 140,000 of whom are in the federal public service—have worked tirelessly to support Canadians through this pandemic.

A daily conference call has taken place starting March 17, 2020 to present, with myself and my technical advisor, Mathieu Juneau, and David Walsh, Assistant Director, CRA National OSH Office, dealing with the Covid-19 Pandemic and the related issues from this pandemic.
