Manitoulin-Sudbury District Services Board - Ontario Works Service Plan 2017-2018

The Manitoulin-Sudbury DSB recognizes the ongoing economic challenges that have developed in the past years. Our catchment area is one that relies heavily on resource based industries. Those have been affected greatly with the global economy. As a result, we see job losses, work shortages and downsizing. The Manitoulin-Sudbury DSB has noticed a steady caseload as clients apply for assistance for a variety of reasons and as well the equal amount who exit the system due to employment. We have also seen an increase of repeat clients who exhaust other financial resources (example: EIB, RRSP, etc.). The Manitoulin-Sudbury DSB is well positioned to address these factors. We also acknowledge that there will be a greater impact on our harder to serve clients that may be competing with a more “employment ready” work pool. We are dedicated to work diligently to tailor our programs to meet the needs of our clients and communities.
