The HRDC Website

 

The Internet is quickly changing the way we communicate with others and the way we seek information. Its impact on our society probably outweighs that of the Industrial Revolution. However, have you ever tried to use a search engine on the ’Net, typed in key words, and obtained the following result: “1,378 sites containing the words…”? So, what do you do next?

The Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC) national website at http://www.hrdc-drhc.gc.ca/ will take you directly to the information you need to help you make the important decisions in your life.

HRDC programs and services are designed to enable Canadians to participate fully in the social and economic life of their community. The HRDC national website is the gateway to what you need to know about Employment Insurance, Canada Student Loans, job opportunities, employment equity, pensions and much more. This is a no-frames site, to facilitate navigation by low-end browsers or adaptive software. You can link to a variety of HRDC-specific national, regional and local sites.

Employers and job seekers will find the information they require. Here are some highlights you can visit through the HRDC national site:
