Trusted by over 60,000 PSWs

The Ontario Personal Support Workers Association (OPSWA) is the first chapter of the Canadian Support Workers Association (CANSWA). Created in June of 2010 by PSWs, OPSWA has grown substantially since then, now representing tens of thousands of PSWs across Ontario. OPSWA is the recognized voice for PSWs with media across our nation and Federal & Provincial Governments.

OPSWA provides PSWs with support, benefits and safety elements while working to professionalize the field. OPSWA gives PSWs a voice and encourages PSWs to get involved with their association.

OPSWA has maintained the same goal since our early days – Respect and Recognition for the PSW and that has never changed.
