E: General Inquiries
The Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice Handbook sets out minimum standards of professional practice and conduct for members of the OCSWSSW. This is in accordance with one of the objects of the College as stated in the Social Work and Social Service Work Act, 1998 "to establish and enforce professional standards and ethical standards applicable to members of the College". For the purposes of the Act (Section 26), and the Professional Misconduct Regulation (Ontario Regulation 384/00), these standards have been approved in a by-law of the College as standards of practice for its members. The Standards of Practice are meant to be applied to members’ practice in conjunction with any applicable legislation and with their professional judgment.
Due to circumstances beyond the control of the College, we are temporarily unable to respond to Practice and CCP Inquiries in a timely manner. Please review the resource materials on the College website in the Resource room.
