The social work profession is rooted in the pursuit of social justice. We seek opportunities to uphold human rights and to respect diversity. We work to advocate for change and build on strengths. In this time of reconciliation in Canadian history, we strive to become agents of decolonization. Remaining resilient and hopeful in our profession is of utmost importance for our well-being and the well-being of those we serve.
