The PSAC’s NCR Pride Committee was established in 1991. It is open to all members in good standing of PSAC within the NCR who self-identify as part of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community as well as allies.

PSAC Pride will focus on activities on celebrating the resiliency and perseverance of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities. Pride is not only a vibrant and vocal way to recognize the achievements of 2SLGBTQIA+ people, but it is also a rallying cry to end discrimination, homophobia, transphobia, and biphobia.

We strive to:

  • Promote equity and protect the human rights of 2SLGBTQIA+* members;
  • Provide a safe informal forum for discussions on work-related issues specific to 2SLGBTQIA+ members;
  • Actively address 2SLGBTQIA+ members’ work-related concerns, as well protect human rights.

To join us and help support and advocate for our community, please contact us at the email below.

The NCR Pride Committee requires the Chair and Vice-Chair to be of different genders to create a forum with more balanced gender representation.

Chair: Charles Baril (He/him/his)

Vice-Chair: Lydia Picknell (She/her/hers)

Secretary-Treasurer: Juan G. Melara-Pineda  (He/him/his)
