NOTE: The social work program offered at MacEwan University (formerly Grant MacEwan College), Edmonton, Alberta has been approved by the Council of the OCSWSSW as equivalent to a social service work program offered in Ontario at a college of applied arts and technology. If you obtained a diploma in social work from MacEwan University, please go to Graduates of a Social Service Work Diploma Program from a College of Applied Arts and Technology in Ontario.

Please note: Programs from private career colleges do not meet the education requirement(s) for registration in either category of the College (SSW or SW). This applies to any application for registration. Accumulating post-graduate work experience does not alter this.

If you are a graduate of any other social service work program outside Ontario, you may submit your combination of academic qualifications and experience performing the role of a social service worker for the Registrar’s consideration. For more information, please visit the Graduates of Non-Approved Social Service Work Programs Outside Ontario webpage.
