Register Now for the College’s 2021 Educational Forum!

The Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (the College) invites you to attend its Educational Forum on Wednesday October 27, 2021. The Educational Forum is part of the Glenda McDonald Educational Series.

What to Expect

Following the success of this year’s two-day virtual Annual Meeting and Education Day (AMED), which reached over 2,000 members, and as part of the College’s ongoing efforts to increase equity and inclusion, this year’s Educational Forum will be hosted entirely online via livestream.

This half-day virtual event is an excellent opportunity for you – as a member of the College  – to stay connected with the College and gain valuable knowledge through the following agenda:

  • OCSWSSW update; and
  • the keynote address titled “The Role and Value of Social Workers and Social Service Workers for Families of Children with Autism” presented by Tina Gandhi, MSW, RSW.

Although the Educational Forum is completely virtual, you will be able to participate by asking questions during the keynote address question period and/or engage with peers through the chat feature in the virtual portal. Registration also gives you access to view the Forum on-demand following the live event.
