50 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

Putting our members first

APER is a bilingual professional association founded in 1973 that represents managers working in Quebec’s health and social services sector. Since APER’s inception, we’ve been a staunch ally for our members, offering a wide range of professional services to meet their unique needs around career development, labour relations, and advocacy.

Our mission

Our mission is to advocate for the rights and working conditions of managers in Quebec’s health and social services system.

Our values

Action

We have a reputation for providing professional service and delivering meaningful results.

Commitment

The APER team is proactive, engaged, member-oriented, and committed to quality service.

Collaboration

We opt for a non-confrontational, mutually beneficial approach to dispute resolution.

Expertise

We have proven expertise in labour relations and labour law and an in-depth understanding of the health and social services system.

Community

APER aims build community by providing professional development and networking opportunities for managers all over Quebec.

Board of Directors

Our directors carry out their duties and responsibilities in accordance with the association bylaws and serve the terms for which they were elected at the Annual Meeting. The Board of Directors’ role is to adopt policies that align with the association’s strategic goals. It also sets targets and allocates the resources needed to meet them. More broadly, the Board is responsible for the overall management and oversight for the association. APER relies on the active involvement and commitment of our Board’s 8 elected members, who meet at least 4 times a year to fulfill their mandates.
