The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) is one of Canada’s largest national labour unions, with members in every province and territory. In fact, it is the biggest union in the Canadian Federal Public Sector. PSAC members also work abroad in embassies and consulates.

While many of PSAC’s 160,000 members work for the federal government, crown corporations or agencies as immigration officers, fisheries officers, food inspectors, customs officers and the like, an increasing number of PSAC members work in the private sector: in women’s shelters, universities, security agencies and casinos. In Northern Canada, the PSAC represents most unionized workers employed by the governments of the Yukon, Nunavut and the Northwest Territories and some municipalities.

PSAC’s National President is John Gordon; he was elected in May 2006 after Nycole Turmel, who had held the Presidency since 2000, retired. Prior to being elected President, Gordon was the National Executive Vice-President.

PSAC's Ottawa headquarters building, designed in 1968 by Paul Schoeler, is a notable example of modernist architecture in Ottawa.[2]
