The Provincial Schools Authority (PSA)

The Provincial Schools Authority (PSA) was established as an agency of the Ministry of Education (EDU) in 1975 under the Provincial Schools Negotiations Act. The PSA is the employer of record for teachers, principals and vice-principals employed in provincially operated schools.

The PSA aims to perform its role as the employer of record for teachers, principals and vice principals working in provincially operated schools in a fair, equitable and efficient manner and in compliance with the Provincial Schools Authority Act (formerly the Provincial Schools Negotiations Act).

Members of the PSA meet to discuss issues regarding the employment of teachers and to make decisions with respect to the handling of grievances, leave provisions and other administrative functions.
