As the regulatory body for social workers and social service workers in Ontario, the College protects the Ontario public from unqualified, incompetent and unfit practitioners. By employing registered social workers and registered social service workers, employers ensure that their employees:
- Have met specific entry-to-practice requirements
- Are bound by the College’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice
- Engage in ongoing learning through the College’s Continuing Competence Program (CCP)
- Are accountable through the College’s complaints and discipline processes
To learn more about the College, its mandate and how it protects the public, we encourage employers to take the College Knowledge Quiz. Designed to test an employer’s knowledge, this quiz highlights the many benefits of hiring registered social workers and registered social service workers.
