To College members and other stakeholders:
In light of recent developments concerning COVID-19, the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers has closed its offices until further notice.
The College made this very difficult decision in order to protect its staff and stakeholders, recognizing that we all have a shared responsibility to take steps to reduce the spread of the virus. Please note that the closure means that all College operations and services are suspended at this time. We sincerely apologize for this disruption and its impact on all our stakeholders, and we thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time.
