Social ServicesThe Social Services Department provides a diverse range of community and human services, which are responsive to the unique and changing needs of our community. The department is organized into four divisions: Social Housing, Ontario Works, Children’s Services and Adult Protective Services. The department’s vision is to provide a range of high-quality social services that are responsive to the unique and changing needs of our community and which reflect and value the contribution of all those who actively participate. To realize this vision, we strive to demonstrate the shared values of respect, commitment, flexibility and trust. We are committed to integrating services and ministry-led changes with the current programs and services offered, and staff are encouraged and motivated to provide competent and dependable services and to achieve goals.
The Social Services Department reports to the Community Services Committee of Lanark County Council.
