In simple terms, Social Workers are problem solvers. They are trained to rapidly assess difficult situations. By viewing the multiple variables such as biology, psychology and socio-economics, they use their skills and research to bring about positive changes for people.

Due to the Social Work and Social Services act of 1998, all social workers must be registered and must belong to the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.
