About Us

Provincial Council

The Provincial Council is the legislative body of OSSTF/FEESO between Annual Meetings. As a result, it is responsible for determination of interim policy, authorization of expenditures as provided for in the bylaws, and the approval or disapproval of provincial action.

As well, since Councillors represent individual districts, sectors and bargaining units, Provincial Council provides an important forum for the expression of district, sector and bargaining unit concerns and interests.

Applications to Provincial Standing Committees and Councils

The OSSTF/FEESO Provincial Council Nominations Committee invites members who are interested in contributing to the work of the Federation by serving on a Provincial Committee or Council to consider making an application.
