Ontario Social Work Students in Need of Placements

The Remote Practicum Project can provide a match in time for fall 2020!


Given the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, many social work student placements have been cancelled. Schools of social work in Ontario are seeking placement opportunities for the fall term 2020 that can be accomplished in a fully remote learning environment.

Over the last few months, Ontario social workers have shown leadership and outstanding flexibility in the transition to the virtual world by providing services to their clients via telephone and/or video/online platforms. Social workers who are currently working in fully remote environments are uniquely positioned to support social work students who are eagerly seeking field placements in order to complete their educational programs on time.

How can YOU Help? Consider providing a field placement to an Ontario social work student this fall...

  • If you have partnered with a school or faculty of social work to provide student placements in the past, please contact that school directly .
  • If you wish to make a student placement opportunity available to a student anywhere in Ontario, please contact the Coordinator of the Remote Practicum Project (RPP).
    The RPP will receive your request and connect with you directly to explore possibilities for linking you with university practicum coordinators who will match you with a student (or students) in need.

On behalf of Ontario social work students, thank you!
