Helping Canadians access benefits: An introduction to the Benefits Wayfinder (free webinar!)

Prosper Canada and the North Park Neighbourhood Association invite you to the webinar “Helping Canadians access benefits: An introduction to the Benefits Wayfinder”

Searching for government benefits 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.

This 75-minute webinar is for any organization who works directly with people living on low and modest incomes and is interested in learning about ways to help clients increase their incomes by accessing government benefits. Members of the public who want to learn about the Benefits wayfinder are also welcome!

At this webinar, you will learn how to help people seeking ways to boost their incomes and/or reduce their expenses by simplifying the search for government benefits using the Benefits wayfinder.

The webinar will include:

  • A Benefits wayfinder walkthrough using two “Personas” to highlight key features
  • How you might use the Benefits wayfinder to support your work with clients/community members in a variety of contexts, from community centres to schools to resource groups to neighbourhood associations, non-profits, and service providers
  • How individuals can use the tool on their own and the four ways to search for benefits.
The Benefits wayfinder is accessible at and the information and resources provided are from federal, provincial, and territorial governments and are updated on an ongoing basis as new information becomes available. Individuals can use the Benefits wayfinder on their own or with your organization’s support. Groups can train their staff on how to help people navigate through it.
