Introducing the Benefits wayfinder!
Searching for government benefits that are relevant to you can feel like wading through a huge ocean of information. With so many benefits programs out there, it can be hard to know where to start.
Introducing the Benefits wayfinder, developed by national charity Prosper Canada and sponsored by TD Bank! The wayfinder is a simple, easy to use, plain language tool that helps you find and track benefits you could get. The information and resources provided are from federal, provincial, and territorial governments, updated on an ongoing basis as new information becomes available.
