Negotiation Representation 

Every Principal and Vice-Principal in Canada, with the exception of school leaders in British Columbia, is represented provincially in their contract negotiations. We believe that BC Principals and Vice-Principals should have the same right. 

For the past seven years, the  BCPVPA has been working to achieve a standardized provincial approach for terms and conditions of employment which are common to all school leaders. 

 These documents and presentations are a sampling of the work that the BCPVPA has presented to BCPSEA and other sector partners in relation to negotiation representation, and the journey continues.
