Email Admail

OASW offers the opportunity of reaching its members by email to advertise services with relevance to social workers.

In order to advertise electronically with OASW:

  • The e-mailing must be approved by OASW.

  • Each ad is sent individually (i.e., not combined with other ads); an advertiser can choose to advertise more than one event within the same ad. (There is no size limit.)

  • The advertisement needs to be within the body of the message ready to forward as is (we do not send attachments and we do not provide a design service).

  • Some advertisers send text-only messages (with hyperlinks to their website).  We can also forward ads designed in online programs such as MailChimp, Constant Contact, etc.

  • Cost: 25 cents per e-mail address + $100 administrative charge (we have approximately 6,500 valid email addresses that receive advertising)

  • We can also target geographically if you want to reach less than the whole province – let us know what region and we can provide a quote

  • The emailing must be done by OASW staff (email addresses will not be provided to outside organizations)

  • The emailing can sometimes be completed within 4 to 6 weeks of the request (however we suggest you reserve a date as soon as possible)

  • Credit card pre-payment is required immediately prior to any admail. 

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Rita Mascherin, Manager of Executive Operations and Governance at [email protected].
