Welcome to OSSWA
We are the Ontario Social Service Worker Association (OSSWA). Our vision is to elevate the profile of social service work in Ontario to assist those in pursuit of social justice through the follow ways:
Support – We offer direct support to social service workers
Unified Voice – We facilitate a unified provincial voice amongst social service workers
Advocacy – We promote mobilization on critical issues
Opportunities – We coordinate opportunities for professional development
Unlike the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW), we are not a regulatory body. While the OCSWSSW aims to protect clients social service workers serve, we, on the other hand, work to support social service workers themselves.
