Canadian Association of Social Workers

The Canadian Association of Social Workers (CASW) is a national federation of partner organizations and direct affiliate individual members. CASW is seeking approval from the Minister for Industry Canada to allow individual memberships for social workers in Alberta, Ontario and Quebec since these three provinces do not have provincial associations that are partners with CASW.

  • CASW Bulletin - initiatives and activities of the CASW, as well as activities within the International Federation of Social Workers
  • CASW Reporter - monthly e-flyer
