Infographic: Service Canada is the Face of Government for Many Canadians

From Employment and Social Development Canada

Created in 2005 as a single point of access to a wide range of government services and benefits, Service Canada supports Canadians throughout every step of their lives.

Whether helping youth gain meaningful employment through the Youth Employment Strategy, providing pensions to seniors, or partnering with organizations to serve vulnerable populations, Service Canada connects programs and benefits to the people and organizations that need them.
