Join the OCSWSSW on Social Media

The Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) is expanding and enhancing its presence on Twitter and LinkedIn.

The world is changing and more and more people are connecting and sharing their experiences on social media. In fact, more than 80% of College members who participated in the College’s comprehensive Member Communications Survey indicated they would like to receive social media alerts from the College regarding new learning tools, materials and content.

Through its social media platforms, the College intends to:

  • Connect with members and the public
  • Share opportunities, updates, research and tools
  • Provide real-time engagement during College events, including the Annual Meeting and Education Day (AMED)

The College encourages social media participants to engage in a dialogue that is respectful of other participants and of the College’s social media Community Guidelines. The College welcomes members to connect with us on our social media platforms.
