Our mission is to act as the voluntary professional association for social service work.
Our vision is for one voice in the profession of social service work and for its objectives.
What is the difference between the association and the college?
The Ontario Social Service Worker Association (OSSWA) is the designated, voluntary professional association and the one voice for the profession of social service work.
The Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) is the designated, compulsory professional regulatory body that governs both professions of social service work and social work in Ontario.
