COVID-19 member stories

Every day, PSAC members continue to screen travellers at the border, inspect the food heading to grocery store shelves, help Canadians stranded abroad and protect the most vulnerable members of our community.

They stepped up to deliver the historic Canada Emergency Response Benefit to millions of Canadians in need.

In the fight against COVID-19, PSAC members across Canada have gone above and beyond to ensure Canadians continue receiving the services they depend on, including being world leaders in research on COVID-19 – developing one of the first novel coronavirus vaccines and working in testing labs across the country.

Behind every public service Canadians rely on, there are hard-working PSAC members putting in extra hours under incredible stress and personal risk to serve Canadians.

Here are just a few of their stories.
