Putting an end to costly and ineffective outsourcing in the public service is one of our top priorities at the Institute. You can help by telling us how outsourcing is impacting your workplace and your job - email your “Terrible Tales of Outsourcing” to communications@pipsc.ca and together we’ll demonstrate to the government and to all Canadians that public service professionals can do better work at lower cost than any external contractor. Your identity and work location will remain confidential.
