Abstract

This paper examines whether the short- and long-term goals surrounding the Ontario government’s decision to create district social services administration boards have been met based on a case study of the Cochrane District Social Services Administration Board (CDSSAB). The findings reveal that the province’s short-term objectives have been met and, although many challenges persist, the CDSSAB is well positioned to meet the long-term objectives of efficiency, less government, and superior integrated services.
