Message from the Chief Administrative Officer

We believe all people have the right to dignity, respect and a good quality of life.

The District of Thunder Bay Social Services Administration Board (TBDSSAB) operates to provide quality social services which recognize people’s potential to achieve self-sufficiency.

TBDSSAB is a service system management organization created by the provincial government to oversee the local planning, coordination and delivery of a range of services and programs. District Social Services Administration Boards (DSSABs) are unique to Northern Ontario. TBDSSAB is one of Ontario’s ten DSSABs.

The specific programs TBDSSAB is responsible for are: Ontario Works, Social & Affordable Housing, and Child Care & Early Years Services.
