NOTE: The social work program offered at Grant MacEwan College, Edmonton, Alberta has been approved by the Council of the OCSWSSW as equivalent to a social service work program offered in Ontario at a college of applied arts and technology. If you obtained a diploma in social work from Grant MacEwan College, please go to Graduates of a Social Service Work Diploma Program from a College of Applied Arts and Technology in Ontario.

If you are a graduate of any other social service work program outside Ontario, you may submit your combination of academic qualifications and experience performing the role of a social service worker for the Registrar’s consideration.

Programs from private career colleges do not meet the education requirement(s) for registration in either category of the College (SSW or SW). This applies to any application for registration. Accumulating post-graduate work experience does not alter this.

If you do not have a SSW diploma, please go to Graduates of Other Academic Programs That Are Not in Social Service Work.
