News Reported on June 5, 2015
OASW is pleased to report that the Minister of Community and Social Services Helena Jaczek made an important announcement at our recent Annual General Meeting: "A new $1 million Professional Development Fund has been established to provide training initiatives to registered social workers and social service workers in Ontario over the next two academic years."
This announcement was the culmination of many years of targeted advocacy by OASW for access to professional development funds for social workers.
More details about this fund, which will be launched this fall, will be announced in an E-bulletin in the next few months, including details on how to access the fund.
