Curious to know if you have the list that says which providers in which communities?

Bill Bell said...

Nope, I don't have that, hadn't heard of it. Can you share it with others?

C. L. Cotton said...

Thank you so much, Bill. Once again you are providing a much needed resource in a a timely manner. Employment Ontario web site indicated it would publish updated list August '10. Hopefully it will be updated sooner than August.

Bill Bell said...

August?!

Anyway I was glad to do it, thanks to Patti.
