PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATION

The Ontario Social Service Worker Association is the designated voluntary professional association for social service work in Ontario and Canada. The work of any professional association is to serve the interests of its members and the profession through comprehensive supports. The association is not a labour union.

PROFESSIONAL REGULATOR

The association does not regulate the profession of social service work in Ontario. The mandate of any regulator is to govern the profession in the publics interest. The Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) is the regulator for the profession of social service work in Ontario.

Membership is key to a strong social service work profession.

We are stronger when we unite in the interest of our profession, for our service users and for our communities, together.

Registered Social Service Workers are the backbone of our social care and services system.

The Ontario Social Service Worker Association celebrates the profession of social service work during the associations sponsored ‘social service work week’. This recognition week is held on the second week of March, every year.

The inaugural social service worker week was in March, 2022. We would like to thank the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services and many other government/public stakeholders and organisations in celebrating SSW week!
