The Week of March 4 to 10, 2019 marks this year’s Social Work Week. Social Work Week is celebrated annually across Canada during the month of March. This year’s theme: “From everyday issues to complex needs: Social Workers, it’s what we do” provides an important vehicle to celebrate the profession’s accomplishments. It also affords a significant opportunity to raise the profile of the profession, especially with members of the public who have never used social work services.
We incorporate the celebration of the whole CCAS of Hamilton team in recognition of the various staff whom all play a role in ensuring we provide quality child protection services. The majority of our staff are social workers; however, the CCAS team includes accounting, IT, legal, administrative support, and maintenance staff. Throughout the week, we will hold a series of events promoting and recognizing the vital role each staff person plays in our organization.
