District 16 York Region

CPAC (Communication & Political Action)

Working to Ensure the Members Voices are Heard...

The focus of the CPAC (Communication/Political Action) committee is to investigate, dialogue about and be actively involved in political issues affecting District 16 members and public education. CPAC also represents District 16 on the Toronto and York Region labour Council (a council composed of unions within Toronto and York Region), and various other committees (i.e. York Communities for Public Education).

Additionally the committee is responsible for the promotion of political engagement activities and programs of secondary schools; to inform teachers of issues and programs of relevance; to publish the district newsletter on a regular basis; and to establish a working relationship with different political stakeholders around York Region.

The district newsletter SIGNAL is published every two months from September to July.  If you would like to submit an article to be published in SIGNAL, send it via email to the Signal Editor, Vanessa Stoby (vanessa.stoby@osstfd16.on.ca).   

Additionally, CPAC site representatives are required to be actively involved during elections years (municipal and provincial). CPAC also distributes information to the members of District 16 on a wide variety of issues ranging from local political to global matters and issues.
