- British Columbia College of Social Work
Social Workers in the Province of British Columbia presently have no licensing requirements. Anyone who holds a degree in Social Work may be employed as a social worker, without a license.
If the College of Social Workers were to have Mandatory Licensing and registration of social workers, it would hold social workers accountable for their actions in the scope of their employment as a social worker.
By licensing social workers, members of the public would not only be able to hold social workers accountable for their actions, but there would be remedies available to the public when a social worker acts unethically.
By licensing social workers in the Province it will ensure that Social Workers, follow the Social Work code of ethics, and will eliminate social workers whom do not conduct their work in an ethical manner.
We, the undersigned, call on the British Columbia Legislature, and the British Columbia College of Social Work, to implement a licensing requirement for all individuals whom work as a social worker in the Province of British Columbia.
