Prosper Canada launched the Benefits wayfinder, an online tool that simplifies the search for government benefits for people seeking ways to boost their incomes and/or reduce their expenses.
Prosper Canada offers an online tool with four ways to search for government benefits:
- 'Starting Points' suggests benefits for people in specific groups (e.g., newcomers) or life phases (e.g., lost my job)
- 'Questionnaire' provides a list of personalized benefits
- 'Browse all benefits' lets people search for benefits they already know about
- 'Selecting benefits' they already receive lets people explore related benefits
The Benefits wayfinder can be used by individuals, as well as community service providers that help people to access their income benefits.
