Social work is a profession dedicated to helping individuals, families, groups and communities enhance their individual and collective well-being.
Every province has a college that regulates the profession of Social Work across Canada.
The 4 Objects of the College
- To promote and increase the professional knowledge, skills and proficiency of its members as Social Workers;
- To regulate and govern the professional conduct and discipline of its members, students and professional corporations, consistent with the principles of self-regulation in the public interest;
- To promote and foster in the public a greater awareness of the importance of Social Work; and
- To generally advance the professional interests of its members.
