Due to the evolving situation regarding COVID-19, as of Monday March 16, OASW staff will be operating remotely until further notice. This decision was made to limit staff exposure and ensure our ability to continue to provide support and services.

OASW staff can be reached using their usual email addresses during office hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

While we do not anticipate any significant service disruptions, we appreciate your patience for any delays in response time. In addition, during this time we will discontinue any in-person meetings, accepting visitors at the OASW office, and receiving any deliveries/packages.

For immediate questions please contact us at [email protected].

We hope to return to our offices as soon as possible, please check back for regular updates.
