Federal Public Service workers have always been committed to showing up for Canadians. In these difficult times, that hasn’t changed. The contributions and value of the public service and public service workers have only become more apparent. 

However, from Paul Samyn’s Monday night COVID-19 email introduction, readers might get the impression that workers at Service Canada were on vacation while Canadians can’t get access to the vital services that they need. Nothing could be further from the truth. 

You may not have heard about it, but this week is National Public Service Week.

Every year for one week,  the federal government  celebrates its more than 300,000 employees. It usually comes and goes without too much fanfare, but this year should be different. 

All Canadians should be encouraged to recognize the public sector workers helping our country weather the brutal impacts of COVID-19.
