It is #SocialWorkMonth2023 and Family Service Toronto joins in the celebration of social workers from across Canada. And, March 6 to 12 is also Social Work Week in Ontario.
This year’s theme, #SocialWorkIsEssential, speaks to the diverse and essential nature of the social work profession.
Every day, social workers support Canadians in navigating complex systems. As we emerge from the pandemic and more Canadians experience mental health challenges, social workers are more essential than ever. In schools, long-term care centres, hospitals, social service agencies and many more other places, social workers are there to facilitate and increase access to mental health and social services systems for those in need.
Thank you to our social workers!
