Employing Social Workers who are members of the Manitoba College of Social Workers offers credibility and provides assurances that your clients will receive care and services that are professional and ethical, delivered by individuals who are qualified and accountable.
As professionals, Social Workers are accountable for their actions and must adhere to the College Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
Registration demonstrates commitment to accountability, ethics and excellence in social work. In addition to being accountable to their clients and employers, Social Workers are accountable to the College as required by legislation in the province of Manitoba. All members are accountable to practice in accordance with The Social Work Profession Act, the regulations made under the Act, and the by-laws of the College.
Social Workers Participate in lifelong learning
The Continuing Competence Program, to be established in 2016, will ensure members meet professional and ethical standards to undertake ongoing practice enhancement. This program will support workplace standards by requiring members of the College to establish and fulfill a professional learning plan.
