Owing to government amalgamations within the BPS, it was felt important to create and co-ordinate communication and campaigns among these five sectors.

Net income from LCBO sales goes to the province in the form of an annual dividend to help pay for vital public services, including health care, education and infrastructure.
OPSEU/SEFPO represents many thousands of members working in the province’s 24 colleges of applied arts and technology.
