Renew Your College Membership for 2021

As a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, you must pay your membership fees annually, by December 31.

Keeping your membership current is important. It demonstrates your commitment to professional, ethical, qualified and accountable practice. It also says something important about the professions of social work and social service work as a whole, and about you as an individual practitioner.

The renewal season began November 10th. The deadline to complete your membership renewal and payment for the year 2021 is December 31, 2020.

Members can renew their membership and pay their annual fee through the College’s online member services at https://www.ocswssw.org/members/membership-renewals/.

New members who were issued a certificate of registration at any time in 2020 are required to complete their 2021 annual renewal of registration and provide confirmation of participation in the Continuing Competence Program (CCP) for the year 2020. For more information about the CCP, please visit the College website.

2021 College fees

At its May 2020 meeting, the College Council made the decision not to increase registration or membership fees for the year 2021. The College recognizes the significant and ongoing impact – including financial – that COVID-19 has had on members.

For more information on the College’s membership fees, please visit our website.

Remember: Only professionals registered with the College are allowed to use the titles “social worker,” “registered social worker,” “social service worker” or “registered social service worker.”
