What do PSAs do?

  • PSA conferences – Each year, scores of volunteers organize provincial and regional conferences for colleagues. The PSA conferences are highlighted on the BCTF’s PD Calendar as well as in the PSA conference brochure.
  • PSA workshops – Many PSAs offer workshops for schools or districts, often at a cost.
  • PSA publications – Volunteers, who are teachers themselves, produce newsletters and/or journals. BCTF members may join any of the Federation’s PSAs. Subscriptions to PSA publications are available to non-BCTF members or institutions.
  • E-mail lists – Subscribe to any of the PSA e-mail lists. Some lists are open to all members.
