Link between My Account and My Service Canada Account

The link provides you with a convenient connection between the Canada Revenue Agency's (CRA) My Account for individuals and Employment and Social Development Canada's (ESDC) My Service Canada Account.

If you are registered for CRA’s My Account you can securely access ESDC’s My Service Canada Account without having to login or revalidate your identity. The link will take you directly to your My Service Canada Account within a single secure session, without having to sign in or register with MSCA.

My Service Canada Account provides convenient and secure access to view and update your Employment Insurance (EI), Canada Pension Plan (CPP), and Old Age Security (OAS) information online.

Finding the link between My Account and My Service Canada Account

Within My Account, you can find the link between My Account and My Service Canada Account in the bottom left corner of the Welcome page. No need to log in again!

Information provided when using the link to My Service Canada Account

Your SIN will be used solely for the purposes of ESDC identifying you and displaying your information to you on My Service Canada Account, and for no other purposes. Your SIN may be stored by ESDC for a period of time in accordance with all applicable laws and privacy policies.
