IAMAPSW - Hero Sub Content
OPSWA & Ontario Ministry of Long-Term Care

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

You Could Be Eligible For Funding

Up to $5,440 to PSW students as a stipend during their clinical placement in a long-term care home and/or home and community care employer.

$10,000 to recent PSW graduates in exchange for a 12-month commitment to work in a long-term care home or for a home and community care employer.

An additional $10,000 to support relocation costs for those recent PSW graduates committing to work in a long-term care home or with a home and community care employer in a rural, remote, or northern area for 12 months.

Learn More

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.
