Council Meetings

Council meetings are open to the public. Dates are announced on this website and highlights from each meeting are published on the website and in our Perspective newsletter.

As a result of the ongoing impact of COVID-19, all Council meetings are being held virtually until further notice. To attend the meeting virtually, please email Amy Vranchidis.


The Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers is situated on the traditional land of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg [ah-nish-naw-bek], the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee [hoodt-en-oh-show-nee], and the Wendat peoples. The College’s office, where we are hosting our meeting today, is in the “Dish With One Spoon Territory”, which is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the area and protect the land in the spirit of community. We acknowledge the history of the meeting place on which we are gathered, and are grateful to have the opportunity to live and work on this land.

Today, the province of Ontario is home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis [may-tee] peoples. Each nation is unique in their world views, language and histories, and we gather here in the spirit of openness, with a commitment to continue to recognize and reflect upon the important work ahead. We ask you to join us in honouring this history and in moving forward in partnership and collaboration as we learn and unlearn together.
