When visiting in-person, it is required that you:
Wear a face mask
Service Canada is a federal service provider. As such, we continue to ask all clients and visitors to wear a face mask. This applies even in areas where provincial or territorial requirements differ.

Service Canada promotes a scent reduced work environment and encourages the limited use of scented products in our offices.
