OPSWA in partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Long Term Care

In partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Long-Term Care, OPSWA is promoting joining Ontario’s PSW workforce.

To improve and promote recruitment of PSWs into long-term care, we are hosting job fairs and community events over the next 8 months across the province.

Our goal is to promote the PSW as a professional career of choice in Ontario. Through our events, we will be educating the public on the role of a PSW and how vital they are to Ontario’s health care system.


New events coming soon
