Introducing the DFO Winnipeg SP Subgroup 

The SP subgroup was formed in January 2020, was recently approved by the PIPSC Executive Committee and is 

currently operating with interim executive subgroup members until an election can be coordinated.  It is our hope

that we can increase communication through the subgroup and as a sign of that intention, we invite you to read 

our first “PIPSC report”. These communiques will be distributed throughout the year and will contain timely information, tips and reminders. We welcome submissions and ideas. 


Your interim Subgroup Executive: President: Kevin Jacobs

Vice President: Jody Willis

Secretary Treasurer: Chandra Rodgers
