About the CCSWR

The Canadian Council of Social Work Regulators (CCSWR) was formed in 2009 to provide a national structure for the provincial and territorial social work regulatory authorities. Current membership includes the 10 provincial social work regulatory authorities responsible for regulating over 35,000 registered social workers across Canada. The Mission of the CCSWR is to be the privileged voice, both nationally and internationally, on social work regulatory matters in Canada. It will consider, develop and share positions and policies on matters of common concern and interest.

The Council will observe the following principles in pursuit of its goal:
The autonomy of members will not be compromised.
In matters of importance or of national interest, the Council will clearly articulate substantial difference among members.
