My total package

Last updated: October 22, 2021

Pay and reimbursements

Your pay and reimbursements make up a big part of your total compensation package. You also have access to benefits, career opportunities, work options, programs and initiatives that you will not find anywhere else.

All of these programs increase the value of your take-home pay and some of them just make the public service a great place to work.  


Your benefits include extended health and dental plans, life insurance and a Public Service Pension Plan. Find out what's available to you and your family.

Health and well-being

These health and well-being programs can help you quit smoking, prevent you from getting the flu and track your personal health goals.

Diverse services include counselling services, online courses, legal advice and personal financial planning.

Learning and education

These educational opportunities range from courses offered by the Public Service Agency (PSA) to scholarships for you and your children and loan forgiveness programs for post-secondary education. 

Leave and time off

Use these leave and time off options to help you achieve work/life balance, whether you're taking a holiday, furthering your education, or taking care of a new member of the family.
