National Social Work Week March 6-12!

Each year communities and organizations across Canada take time in March to recognize the hard work, dedication, resilience and compassion of social workers. In Ontario, we honour these caring professionals during the first full week of March (March 6-12, 2023)

Social workers support Ontarians navigating various challenges, including illness, mental health concerns, grief and loss, financial stress, housing issues, family violence, addictions, caregiver stress, abuse and bullying. They use their unique expertise to identify causes of stress, help with the development of coping skills, find solutions to problems and connect people with the resources and supports they need.

OPSEU Local 101 is proud to have many amazing social workers in its membership. This week we honour all the dedication and hard work you do year long. Thank you!
