About Us


The Simon Fraser University Administrative and Professional Staff Association (APSA) was incorporated under the BC Society Act in 1980 to provide representation for the group of employees at SFU whose employment was not covered by a collective agreement.

We exist to serve and promote the interests of our members. We do this by:

  • representing members in negotiations, with regard to the terms and conditions of their employment and by providing support in grievances, arbitration and meditations,

  • encouraging members' professional and career development,

  • promoting professionalism, excellence and collegiality,

  • representing members to the public, governments, news media and other educational institutions and

  • doing all such things as may be necessary or conducive to their attainment of these purposes.
