Are you committed to social justice? Learn to work with vulnerable or at-risk individuals, families, and groups who are experiencing barriers to stable housing, education, employment, health care, and social services.

If you have good interpersonal skills, a desire to promote social justice, and are team-oriented, you may find a rewarding career in social service. You’ll be challenged to bring a distinct level of maturity and motivation to your work, along with a fundamental belief in the dignity and potential of people. Through intensive coursework and field experiences, you’ll learn effective communication and helping skills. As a graduate, you qualify to register as a Social Service Worker in Ontario.
