COVID-19 member stories

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. 

PSAC celebrates and honours the critical role of Canada’s federal public service workers. Never have their important contributions been highlighted so starkly than by the pandemic.   

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.
