Member Networks

Connect with your colleagues across the sector

OMSSA's Member Networks provide a valuable opportunity to connect with and learn from human services colleagues across the province to:

  • share resources and best practices

  • compare experiences in interpreting and implementing policies and programs

  • identify emerging issues, capacity gaps and professional development needs

  • find possible solutions to common challenges

  • stay informed on key trends, developments and policy affecting the sector

What Networks are available?

OMSSA currently operates four issue-specific networks:

  • Children's Services Network
  • Housing and Homelessness Network
  • Employment and Income Network
  • Emergency Social Services Network

Network Members can connect throughout the year through:

  • network meetings (by conference call and face-to-face) with member-driven agendas and updates on provincial policy and key emerging developments

  • requests for information (RFI) process, to gain key information or input from network peers

  • online discussion forums (coming soon)

  • a shared library of relevant resources (coming soon)


Who can participate?

Any staff member of an OMSSA Member organization can opt-in to participate in one of OMSSA's Member Networks.

How can I join a Network?

To opt-in to participate in one of OMSSA's Networks, please email Chantille Davis at cdavis@omssa.com. Please include your name, email address, and indicate which of the four Networks you'd like to opt into.

Once OMSSA's Members' Portal launches later this fall, members will be able to opt-in via their Members' Portal Account.

How do I participate?

Once you are opted-in to any of OMSSA's Networks, you'll receive email notifications about upcoming Network calls and meetings. 

Once OMSSA's Members' Portal launches later this fall, all Network members will receive details on how to access dedicated portals, document libraries and discussion forums for each Network that they participate in.
