Ontario Public Service

The Government of Ontario employs more than 60,000 public servants in the Ontario Public Service (OPS), which includes ministries, agencies and Crown corporations. About half of them are represented by OPSEU. These members help the government develop and deliver a vast number of policies, programs and services for the people of Ontario.

The Corrections Division supervises adults in 25 correctional institutions and 119 probation and parole offices. Our division is comprised of some 9,000 members, including correctional officers, probation and parole officers, nurses, social workers, rehab officers, cooks, chaplains, volunteer co-ordinators, bailiffs, rec officers, trades workers and administrative assistants, among others. Correctional workers joined OPSEU in 1968, when the Province took over county jails.
