Provincial Specialist Associations
What are PSAs?
The BCTF includes 32 provincial specialist associations (PSAs) . PSAs are channels for members to exchange ideas on research, teaching strategies, curriculum development, and other shared interests.
Contact PSA Council members by e-mail to ask about their PSA.
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 at psaday.ca.
- PSA workshops
Many PSAs offer workshops for schools or districts, often at cost. Please contact PSAs directly for more
information on the workshops that they offer.
- 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.

Subscribe to any of the PSA e-mail lists. Some lists are open to all members.
