THUNDER BAY, ON ---- June 24, 2011 – Due to the postal disruption, The District of Thunder Bay Social Services Administration Board (TBDSSAB) and Thunder Bay District Housing Corporation (TBDHC) have implemented special procedures to ensure business continuity and client service.
Regardless of the status of the postal disruption and back to work legislation, Ontario Works social assistance recipient cheques for July will not be mailed and will only be available for pickup.

Cheques will not be available at TBDSSAB or TBDHC offices during this period. All cheque recipients must show valid government issued identification in order to pick up a cheque.
