What We Do

The District of Thunder Bay Social Services Administration Board (TBDSSAB) supports people to improve their lives and become self-sufficient. We do this as the service system manager for vital, quality social services needed by individuals and families living in the District of Thunder Bay—including child care and early years, community housing, homelessness prevention programs—and through the delivery of Ontario Works.

COVID-19 Update

TBDSSAB is a Mask-Friendly space, meaning visitors entering the building will be encouraged to wear masks, but mask wearing will no longer be enforced.

TBDSSAB still has a supply of free Rapid Antigen Tests available for service recipients.
