Callout for Observers

The 16th National Convention of the Canada Employment and Immigration Union (CEIU) will be held at the Hilton Lac Leamy in Gatineau, Quebec, from September 7 to 11, 2023.


Convention proceedings are scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. on September 7th, 2023, and adjourn at 12 noon on September 11th, 2023.


Aside from the accredited delegates, any member in good standing of CEIU may attend the 2023 CEIU National Convention as an observer. However, only the accredited delegates will have the right to debate issues and to vote during the CEIU Convention.


A CEIU member in good standing wishing to attend the 2023 CEIU National Convention as an observer will need to fill out the attached ‘Observer Registration Form’ and send it electronically to [email protected]


CEIU National does not provide funds and assumes no responsibility for any costs incurred by or on behalf of observers.  Members who wish to attend as observers must attend at their own expense or contact their local executive and/or their respective CEIU regional National Vice-President(s) to see if there are any available funds that can be provided for their participation as an observer.


Note that registering as an observer does not automatically give you ‘observer status’.  As CEIU will need to limit the amount of observer seats, all registration received will then be submitted to the National Vice-President(s) of the respective region to select amongst the members in their region who has sent it their ‘observer registration’ by the deadline date of June 30th, 2023.


Once CEIU National has been advised of the selected observers, by region, an email will be sent to the member(s) advising them that they have been selected as an observer to attend the 2023 CEIU National Convention in Gatineau, Quebec and at that time, CEIU National will be providing further information, regarding travel, hotel accommodation, accommodation needs, etc.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the CEIU National Office at [email protected]
