Who We Are

Federally Regulated Employers – Transportation and Communications (FETCO) is an employers’ association comprised of federally regulated firms within the transportation and communications sectors. FETCO members collaborate on matters related to human resources and labour relations, including issues captured by several key pieces of legislation, such as the Canada Labour Code, Employment Equity Act, Human Rights Act, as well as others.

FETCO members are typically the most senior person in each member organization with responsibility for human resources (HR) and/or industrial relations (IR), though FETCO engagement often occurs with member company representatives at all levels. FETCO companies collectively employ around 500,000 Canadian workers, mostly in unionized organizations, and all are regulated under the Canada Labour Code.
