Cochrane District Social Services Administration Board

The District of Cochrane Social Services Administration Board was established in February 1999 by provincial legislation as part of the Local Services Realignment. The CDSSAB was created through the consolidation of the Cochrane District Welfare Board and the City of Timmins Department of Social and Family Services to deliver Ontario Works and Children's Services throughout the District. In 2000, the CDSSAB gained responsibility for the contract management and direct delivery of Emergency Medical Services in Cochrane District. In 2001, Social Housing became CDSSAB's newest responsibility.
