Welcome! Who are we? Local Services Boards (LSB’s) were formed in 1990 to facilitate the delivery of basic community services in unincorporated areas of Northern Ontario. The Lappe & Area Local Services Board provides Emergency Services, Recreation Services, Library Services and Transfer Site Services within our boundaries of Ware, Gorham, Jacques and Fowler.  The Lappe & Area Local Services Board enforces a “zero tolerance” policy, working to prevent any inappropriate behaviour.  Every claim of harassment or discrimination is taken seriously with a goal to deter and eliminate undesirable conduct.  The Lappe & Area Local Services Board will NEVER tolerate, condone, or ignore bullying, harassment or hate crimes of any kind.
