Member Profile January 2019: Joanne Robinson

I cannot remember when I first became active in the union, but I can say that within the last four years I have become more visible and accountable to my local and committees that I participate on.

PSAC NCR would like to take this opportunity to thank our regional committees for their efforts in organizing a successful Human Rights Day Award Ceremony. The PSAC is very proud of our recipients who have demonstrated leadership and commitment in the area of human rights. We would like to thank the following recipients for their efforts and continued dedication to the advancement of equality, fairness and justice for the lives all Canadians.

Fighting for change in my workplace and my community


We all have a role to play in ensuring our workplaces are supportive of everyone. Many people who are trans (have a gender identity that differs from the sex they were assigned at birth) and/or non-binary (do not identify with a binary gender of man or woman) experience harassment, discrimination and exclusion in the workplace.

Please see our guide and tips for trans-inclusive workplaces.
