Meet The Board

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.
