Step 1: Ensure you are a member in good standing (MIGS)

In some situations, PSAC members are not yet, or have ceased being, members in good standing (MIGS) and lose the right to participate in ratification votes.  These include:

  • Extended leave

    • If you are on extended leave (e.g., long term disability, maternity or parental leave, etc.) you are no longer a member in good standing (MIGS), therefore, you must make a request to remain in good standing to the National President via this online form. Once your request has been approved, please forward the email to in order to ensure your vote is counted.

    • If you have difficulty at any time in the process, please contact your PSAC Regional Office at or by phone 613-714-4829.


  • The PSAC constitution requires all members to attend a mandatory information session before they vote. These sessions will be held by GoToWebinar and will allow members to ask questions regarding the content of the tentative agreement. The dates and times of the sessions are listed below.

    • Note, attendance will be tracked, and only those who attended the information session in its entirety, will have their member profile updated on the e-voting system, ensuring that their vote is counted.
