Community Social Services

CUPE represents more than 3,000 workers in B.C.’s Community Social Services sector. Our members are the heart and soul of our communities, delivering services such as community support for the developmentally challenged, employment counselling, addiction counselling, legal advocacy, and early childhood education.

The majority of our Community Social Service members are covered by two of the three subsector provincial agreements, Community Living and General Services. Other members in the sector work under standalone agreements with various agencies.
