The mission of FETCO is to influence positive public policy outcomes for member companies operating in the federal jurisdiction of Canada covering all laws and regulations pertaining to labour relations, employment standards and human resources in the workplace. We attempt to do this, whenever possible, in a collaborative manner, in consultation with organized labour and government.
Over the past decades, FETCO has intervened on a wide range of labour-related matters including, but not limited to, labour relations, occupational health and safety, employment standards, employment equity, human rights, pay equity, workers compensation, privacy, pensions and pandemic preparedness. Where warranted, FETCO has also been involved in provincial matters that have the potential to influence the federal sector.
FETCO relies heavily on the resources of its member companies to accomplish its objectives, including its Board of Directors, a leadership team comprised of volunteer executives from member companies. FETCO has a series of working committees that are chaired and populated by subject matter experts from member companies. The role of the FETCO Executive Director is to lead – in consultation with the Board of Directors – the process of marshalling all these resources to undertake FETCO work.
