Why a Social Worker?

Social workers help people resolve problems that affect their day-to-day lives.


People see social workers when they are going through a difficult period in their personal, family and/or work life.


Social workers help clients:

  • identify and understand the source of stress or difficulty
  • develop coping skills and find effective solutions to their problems
  • find needed resources
  • by providing counselling and psychotherapy.


Social workers deal with all ages, groups, backgrounds and income levels.


Social workers believe in the value and worth of all people. They believe that all members of society regardless of age, race, place of origin, language, religion, gender, sexual orientation or abilities deserve the same basic rights, protections, opportunities, obligations and social benefits.
