Where I work : Government of Canada
Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC; French: Emploi et Développement social Canada) is a department of the Government of Canada responsible for social programs and the labour market at the federal level.
The Department of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) was created in December 2003, when Human Resources Development Canada was split into two separate departments: HRSDC and Social Development Canada. Though they continued to share many common services and operations, HRSDC was to focus on workforce-related aspects of the former HRDC portfolio, while SDC was to focus on social support programs for children, families and seniors. The split was given formal legal effect when the Department of Human Resources and Skills Development Act and the Department of Social Development Act were enacted in July 2005. (Wikipedia text) I have been working for this department after I left Design School in the early 90s. A notable design I did for them was the Labour Canada 100th anniversary logo.
The Departments most popular name was Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC) and that was what it was called when I joined so very long ago. HRDC's base of operations is located at Place du Portage in the Phase IV tower in Gatineau, Quebec which is Canada's largest work floor and it is the second largest Government Complex next to the United States Pentagon in Washington DC.
My most favourite client to work for @HRDC was IMAJIN - YMAGIN : A Youth Network for the department and it was based in my Branch : Strategic Policy. I designed everything for this group including their logo to website & all their events that happened in the department.
