Message from the Registrar and CEO: Postponement of Date of Election of Members to Council in Electoral District No. 3

New Date: July 23, 2020

Dear College member:

We are writing to you as a College member and voter in Electoral District No. 3 with important information about this year’s election of members to Council. In response to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the College has postponed the date of the election for both of the membership categories of social work and social service work to July 23, 2020.

Though the College has resumed many regulatory operations remotely, our physical office remains closed and it is not feasible to hold the election as previously scheduled. The postponement of the election date will enable the College to:

  • complete essential operational tasks associated with the election; and
  • ensure a fair, transparent and accurate election process.

Please note: Candidates running for election to Council in Electoral District No. 3 have now been confirmed and more information will be available on the College’s elections webpage at a later date.

Members eligible to vote will be sent either:

  • a voting package, or
  • notice of how to obtain access, by electronic means, to a ballot, Candidates’ Biographical Summaries, Candidates’ Statements and an explanation of the voting procedures,

no later than June 23, 2020.

If you have any questions about the information above, please contact elections@ocswssw.org.

We encourage you to visit the College’s COVID-19 webpage regularly for other relevant updates concerning the pandemic.

Keep well.

Lise Betteridge, MSW, RSW
Registrar and CEO
