Vice-President of Communication – Sean Foyn

The RVAC began with an idea in November, 1989 in the National Capital Region and became a formal organization by February, 1990, conducting special events to raise awareness about racism. In 1991, a similar group was formed in Toronto and later, in Calgary


Participation in the RVAC is open to all visible minority members of the Public Service Alliance. The Committee meets on the third Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at 233 Gilmour Street.
